Google will certainly prohibit bogus information websites from using AdWords
Recently, Google declared that certain types of resources from an AdWords perspective will ultimately be shut down for websites which advertise phony information, they have a plan that could reduce the traffic potential for websites and blogs which claim and promote hoaxes type news on websites such as Facebook.
This verdict arrives at a crucial time for the technology industry, as their important participants have come beneath huge pressure for not taking necessary action in preventing fake news from proliferating throughout the internet while in the US election this year.
It is believed that, granted the popular elements of the bogus information online, search engines and social networks had been tricked by certain elements directly influencing the results of the US elections. Keep in mind these fake news actually went viral like wildfire during the election.
"Moving forward, we will restrict ad serving on pages that misrepresent, misstate, or conceal information about the publisher, the publisher's content, or the primary purpose of the web property," - a Google spokesperson said.
There is actually a lot of controversy regarding how Mark Zuckerberg responded and acted upon fake news on Facebook, some people might actually leave FB because of this on the long run.
If the social feed doesn't provide accurate information and is actually influencing real life and political events should FB leave those sites get even more views or should it listen to some of its user and ban those websites?
What do you think? When and why would freedom of speech be restricted?
