Facebook users were disturbed, shocked, and angered to receive a new Orwellian pop-up warning asking if they have been exposed to harmful extremist content or if they know anyone who is becoming an extremist.

On Thursday, Facebook users began receiving a new notification that warned they might have been exposed to “extremist content.” It started a buzz and a number of conservatives shared screenshots of the warning. Editor Kira Davis of RedState was one of those who received the alarming message. She shared it on her Twitter account.

“Hey has anyone had this message pop up on their FB? My friend (who is not an ideologue but hosts lots of competing chatter) got this message twice. He’s very disturbed,” Davis asked in her tweet.
