What’s the welcome screen?

The welcome screen is, simply, the new name for a context card, an optional tile that pops up when people click on the ad in their news feed, right before they visualize the pre-filled signup form.

Facebook introduced this function to allow people to get more information about what they were signing up for prior to submitting the form.
