From the Facebook Newsroom:

To reduce the number of these types of posts, News Feed will take into account when many people flag a post as false. News Feed will also take into account when many people choose to delete posts. This means a post with a link to an article that many people have reported as a hoax or chosen to delete will get reduced distribution in News Feed. This update will apply to posts including links, photos, videos and status updates.

Posts that receive lots of reports will be annotated with a message warning people that many others on Facebook have reported it.
This change appears to be focused primarily on news sites that pump out hoaxes regularly, so your paranoid uncle will still be able to make ignorant comments on Onion articles at least!

So this just happened. Enjoying the weather, are you, "Ethan"?

"On This Day" allows Facebook users to enter their own social media time capsule, a museum that pulls up statuses and photos from years gone by. You know, the super important things like asinine updates about traffic or that episode of "Scandal" you were super pumped about, or all the old pictures of your Ex that you never bothered to scrub from the internet entirely.

The feature is private and allows you to share the retro material only at your will, so you're free to crack open a bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 and cry about the state of your current life in absolute privacy. Be warned though: Expect every terrible baby pic you saw three years ago come back like the Ghost of Boring Parents Past.
