In order to prevent the placement of ads distributing face info on sites Google has decided to update its AdSense program policy. After the United States, presidential election social media companies like Facebook and Twitter were blamed for having had an impact on the result of the elections with the news posting of the fake content. The ability of social networks manipulating events and peoples are also a growing concern. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO said recently in a comment that Facebook promote democracy by allowing candidates interconnect directly with people. Google had its own awkward moments on Sunday with a made-up story that claimed that President-elect Donald Trump had won the popular vote in the U.S. presidential elections figuring atop some Google search outcomes.
Google said in a statement that they would be updating their publisher policies in order to start barring Google ads from being placed on misrepresentative content. Ad serving on pages that distort, conceals or misstate info about the issuer, the primary purpose of the web property or the publisher’s content will also be restricted next. The warning of a cut in revenue from ads will discourage sites from publishing fake content is what Google expects.
