Facebook users are warning their friends that they are in for a shock when they attempt to visit a fake news website.
The sites, which are not affiliated with Facebook, appear to offer links to articles that were taken from a fake Russian news site.
A Facebook user wrote: “If you visit this website, you will see the links to Russian news sites.
Facebook users have also discovered a hidden “news” button on their news feed.”
You have to be careful when you click.”

A second user, also anonymous, told the Post: “The site you are visiting is Russian.

“There is nothing wrong with what you see on Russian news. “
You are going into a dangerous place.””

A Facebook spokesman said: ‘Facebook is committed to the freedom of expression, and we take all threats of violence and harassment seriously.
‘We take these reports seriously and have removed all accounts associated with the site and are working with law enforcement to take appropriate action.’
Facebook users are being warned that if they attempt visits to the fake Russian site, they will receive a warning, as well as being directed to a message asking them not to click the links.
Facebook said: ”We remove content that promotes violence and terrorism, and hate speech.
”As part of our efforts to build trust and trustworthiness, we have also recently updated the algorithm to make it harder to trick users into clicking fake news, and if you see content on Facebook that is similar to a page on a Russian news source, we urge you to flag it and tell us about it.
We’ll take action if we see that it violates our standards.”’
