Google has achieved its goal by making billions of daily users who only rely on Google as the best search engine. And with the ongoing trends. Google always try to put something new and unique in the market. Recently, Google stated that it is adding fact-check labels to images as part of its hard works to sort out and visualize misleading information on internet media.
These labs will be attached to the respective web pages of photos and videos which shows in Google search, Google claimed that.
Google product manager Harris Cohen said that “Photos and videos are an incredible way to help people understand what´s going on in the world. But the power of visual media has its pitfalls — especially when there are questions surrounding the origin, authenticity, or context of an image.”
Google explained the accurate terminologies and showed how the fact-checking system will work with an illustration and covering a wide set of images which showed — falsely — sharks were swimming in the streets of Houston after a 2017 storm.
“Starting today, we are surfacing fact check information in Google Images globally to help people navigate these issues and make more informed judgments about what they see on the web,” Harris added.
Google has launched such labels based on the ClaimReview database created by independent fact-checkers.
“Now, when you search on Google Images, you may see a ´Fact Check´ label under the thumbnail image results. When you tap one of these results to view the image in a larger format, you´ll see a summary of the fact check that appears on the underlying web page. These labels may appear both for the fact check articles about specific images and for a fact check articles that include an image in the story,” Cohen told.
As we all know how search engines are helpful when you need to search and find something on the internet. They help us to take us where exactly our concerns relate and what exactly we were looking for. Google claimed that such labels will not affect the website or page search rankings. Cohen said that “Our systems are designed to surface the most relevant, reliable information available, including from sources that provide fact checks.” Technology trends by usable search engines let us know more about the loopholes of internet media. Because a common person totally relies on the information that search engine displays. We can expect more trend updates from Google as a reliable resource.
