Now You Can Block Those Pandering Upworthy Articles All Your Facebook Friends Are Sharing
Basically the modern iteration of a scare-chain email.

Thanks to this crafty (and long overdue) Facebook feature, now you can block clickbait-y articles like “900 Reasons You’re Not As Well-Read As This Trans 5-Year-Old Dancing to Beyoncé” from showing up on your news feed.

What’s more, it’s a Facebook upgrade that doesn’t take five hours to a) comprehend and b) implement. All you’ve gotta do the next time your great-uncle shares a link to his disturbing personal blog is click the arrow on the upper right-hand corner and then select “Hide all from (site).” It might just be the most satisfied you feel all day.
