Defamation Update: Google under fire again

Defamation Update: Google under fire again

Cludo
Another day, another defamation case about Google search engine results. This time, it's the High Court which gave Google the thumbs down in the Michael Trkulja v Google saga. This decision isn't the end of the story though. It started in 2009 when Google searches for "Michael Trkulja" started returning images of him and known criminals in the same results along with headings like "Melbourne Crime". Google tried to argue innocent dissemination, but Trkulja was successful in his defamation claim. Google didn't appeal. The problematic search results continued though, with Google's autocomplete function now offering words like "criminal" and "underworld" after Trkulja's name and searches for "Melbourne criminal underworld" returning images of him. Google agreed to block the autocomplete p...

Google Considers Writing A Google Guide to Search

Google Site Search
Danny Sullivan, now at Google, wrote on Twitter that he has been considering writing a Google Guide to Search document on how organic search works, the features, etc. He said " I've actually seriously been considering a Google Guide to Search Style on features and stuff." Here is the tweet:I can't speak for AdWords but yeah, I've actually seriously been considering a Google Guide to Search Style on features and stuff :)— Danny Sullivan (@dannysullivan) June 28, 2018 Google does have a how search works portal that goes through some of this already. I am not sure how much it will different from this portal. Maybe it would go through more about how featured snippets work, knowledge panels, smart answers, one box, the format of the page, etc. The only issue is, if Google started w

Facebook has promised to give users more control over what they share, but consumer advocates say the company has yet to deliver. In fact, companies like Facebook and Google purposely design their apps’ interfaces to confuse users into giving up personal information, more than 30 consumer groups alleged in letters to the Federal Trade Commission on Wednesday. In the letters, the groups encouraged the FTC to inves

We bet that just a few months ago you had never even heard of KaiOS, but the platform apparently powers over 40 million featurephones. And it just got a massive boost as Google invested $22 million as part of a Series A investment. KaiOS is at the heart of the reborn Nokia 8110 4G, fitting as the operating system itself is a Firefox OS that rose from the ashes. It’s more than HMD’s “featurephone” efforts, though, TCL and Micromax are partners too along with carriers such as Jio, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. KaiOS phones can feature 4G/LTE, Wi-Fi and GPS and are part of the initiative to bring the next billion people online and with Google’s involvement, they’ll get the proper smartphone treatment. As part of the investment, the search giant will help launch its apps on KaiOS –
