Yesterday Google announced a new feature for its Search services. It is called fact checked and it is pretty damn awesome.
Well, at least it targets and resolves the main issue we have today in our society all over the world: FAKE NEWS.
That's right, Google apparently wants to resolve the fake news problem all by itself by introducing fact checks to anything controversial.
So, if I search for "27 million people enslaved" I get the following first result: ?
This news isn't checked directly by Google, but they are checked by accredited news organizations or companies that deal with fact checking. Defiantly more accurate than blindly trusting some guys with a blog that writes some crazy conspiracies stories.
What do you think about this new Google features? Will you trust this new snippet do you think such features will help people to stay more informed with real news?
