Facebook Testing Page Info On Shared Links?

Facebook appears to be testing a new addition to links that are shared on the social network, incorporating information about the Facebook page of the source of the links.

Reader Yan Yanko Kotliarsky shared the screenshot below, in which a Gawker link that was shared contained the description, “news/media website,” and the likes total for Gawker’s Facebook page along with the Gawker name and logo. A like page button appears on the right-hand side.

Readers: Have you seen similar shared links?
