Add Dates to Facebook Article Posts in Newsfeeds

This petition had 437 supporters

Much of the information shared on social media is intended to excite people to action--from mostly harmless click-bait to altering the outcomes of our national elections. While there is a national discussion about how to monitor this information for factual relevance, these conversations can quickly descend into ideological debates about censorship and the first amendment.

There is one piece of information not currently visible from the newsfeed view of shared articles; however, which would enhance the relevance of what is being shared without partisanship: the original publish date of posted articles.

Including this date will help everyone contextualize what they are reading as well as, in the case of calls-to-action, allow them to determine whether the information may have already been acted upon. Better information means a more informed citizenry, which we can all benefit from.
