  • The News – Las Vegas Shooting Video.

    According to trending reports, It’s been gathered that Facebook and Google are on the list of social media sites and Media platforms that has neglected to keep down the tide of fake news on the web. Especially with the recent outburst of fake news of the mass shooting in Las Vegas on October 1st and 2nd 2017.

    The Criticism – Facebook and Google Hooked!

    The reports circled on conservative news platforms even before sneaking past the automated filters owned by Facebook and Google respectively. The two organizations said the issues were short-lived and they were on the verge of settling the disappointments. However, not before they could say “Jack Robinson”, more fresh criticism had already started flying in the air for their failure to curtail the false news.


    “There’s a way — the fact is, they don’t have the will,” said Scott Galloway, a professor of marketing at New York University and author of The Four, a new book about Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. He said the recent hiring of more staff to identify and remove false news was too limited to have an effect: “It’s pi**ing in the ocean — it’s a progression of half measures.” For Facebook, already under intense political pressure over the use of its network by Russian operatives during the US election, the latest slip has come at a difficult time.

    For me; the truth about the Las Vegas shooter is still a mirage!

    Facebook Apology Note.

    The misinformation and misconception on the Las Vegas Shooting Video spread by a site called Alt-Right, showed up on Facebook’s “Security Check” page, which individuals use to ensure their loved ones are sheltered after an emergency. Facebook said the culpable post was spotted by its worldwide security operations focus yet that “its expulsion was deferred by a couple of minutes”.

The public iterated that the social networking giant did not clarify on how its algorithms had enabled the fake information to be posted. In response, Facebook stated “We are attempting to settle the issue that caused this to occur in any case deeply regret the commotion caused by this occurrence”.


    Google Blames System’s Algorithm.

    For Google, the fake Las Vegas News took a different dimension. Unique organic search results about the man wrongly blamed for the shootings brought up a page of indexed lists topped by three conspicuous boxes named “Top Stories”.


    One of these was a post from 4Chan, a website known for its online scams and deception, which contained the false claim. Google’s Top Stories are drawn both from its News service, which has some level of curation, and from a general web organic search. The 4Chan result was drawn from the web. While Facebook had to manually terminate its post, Google said the 4Chan post was “algorithmically supplanted”, and this had taken “hours” from the time it initially showed up.

    What Happens Next?

    Conclusively; to shield itself from allegations of subjectively supporting some search results over others, Google depends more solely on the quality and weight of “good information” to drive out the bad ones from its search result page.

    “This ought not to have showed up for any queries and we’ll keep on making algorithmic changes to keep this from occurring later on,” Google said. Nevertheless, Twitter – another colleague in the same line of business, additionally experienced harsh criticism on Monday after a client posted a screenshot of an inquiry that brought up a result from Infowars.
