Google is continuing their efforts against fake news and the company has publicly stated that fakes news ‘…is the most high profile’ issue that majority of the people who play around with Google’s search engine encounter. A significant percentage of the average searcher’s results are either misleading, offensive or fake.
Google has been doing their best to fight the outbreak of fake news. In line with this, Google with the cooperation of the other ‘big’ Search companies is nearing the completion of an agreement that aims to implement anti-piracy measures for search results. The code is essentially a means to purge the presence of links that violate copyright, or the law in general.
