Facebook noted that it would still be working with legitimate publishers who had been using the feature “to find other solutions that allow publishers to share customized content on our platform.” The company said it would have more to share on this adjustment in the coming weeks.

Facebook’s decision is part of the company’s larger effort to mitigate the spread of false news stories across its platform. Critics of the company argued that the spread of fake news across the site, coupled with the lack of intervention from Facebook, may have misled voters during the presidential campaign.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg initially pushed back against this charge but has since addressed it with changes to the way the company manages content.
