Beware The Fact Checker In Google Is On The Loose!

Last Update: April 10, 2017

What Is The Fact Checker All About?

Now that it has been pointed out that there is Fake Information being broadcast, Google has taken this accusation very seriously and included a Fact Checker with Search Results.

Be advised that when you search in Google now, your search will fall under any of the following 3 Categories:

Mostly True

False

Pants On Fire


Most people are asking the question, "What IS Fake News, or Fake Information?"

Well the definition in Wikipedia reveals quite a stir!

Take a look:



My advice to you would be, make sure the information you post is as accurate as you can ever hope it to be when you post on your website.

It has also been mentioned that the company that decides what falls in the 3 categories mentioned above, had been deemed to be inaccurate.

Proceed with caution and be wisely advised!
