Google will be informing its users when the results of the search are taken seriously. Some quests will bring out the complaint that “it tends to resemble these results if they are shot very quickly,” and when reduced, that will pass “if this topic is new, there may be time to present the results of success.”
The First Information May Not Be the Most Reliable One
The company said that sometimes one is looking for breaking news or emerging topics, but more often than not, reliable information is not available online.
The technical news channel reported yesterday, following a tweet by Stanford Internet Observatory researcher Renee DiResta.
A screenshot of a Google search includes the question of “106 mph recorded,” which refers to the latest tabs about the 2016 UFO views in Wales. (Currently, that specific search result does not include a warning.)
“Someone found this police video released in Wales, and it was still very young in the media. But there is not much more about it,” said Danny Sullivan, a public relations officer with Google.
He added, “But it is possible that people want it, they may be walking around on social media – so we can say it’s starting to trend. And we can also say that there aren’t many good things out there. And we think maybe new things will emerge.”
Google’s Move: Necessary But Sufficient?
Keeping that example aside, Google has shown incorrect information after mass shootings – where initial official reports are often inaccurate and deliberate misinformation is common. This is sometimes exacerbated by “voids void,” or keywords with fewer search results and can be easily hijacked by bad players.
This warning will not prevent harmful content from appearing, and it is unclear how Google determines an acceptable range of sources. But it can dispel the false trickery that Google’s high ranking can give early, unreliable search results.
