“You can now flag articles as clickbait from the “a” menu when reading an article or from long-press when in Feed. We will use your flag as a signal in ranking so we can better prioritize helpful articles over misleading ones for the community,” Artifact said in a blog post.

Along with Mark as clickbait feature, the company also launched other features, such as the ability to react to an article and share articles as images.

The ability to react to an article will let users add an emoji reaction to any article to express how they feel about it.

To react, users just need to tap the heart icon at the bottom of an article or long-press on an article from Feed.

By sharing the article as an image, users will now be able to share a visual of the article so friends can quickly see what the article is about.

“Just tap the share arrow on any article and select the ‘Share as Image’ option. You can also share directly to IG Stories or send an excerpt from the article by selecting the text and tapping the arrow icon that pops up,” the company said.

This feature will be rolling out on Android later this week.
