Microsoft Follows Google Fake News Fight, Adds Fact Check To Bing Search Results

Currently, there are companies that worry about the false news and of course, it makes perfect sense, since they invade us while we see real news on the web as in a social network, something already quite common, but that in the case of the social network giant Facebook is already starting to take matters to end the false news.

The tech giant Google has already activated their “Fast Check” something that really is quite positive, since, we can identify false news. Now, along with these tech giants, the tech giant Microsoft also adds something new to combat the problems of False News.

Recently the tech giant Microsoft just activated the “Fact Check” tag but in the search results of Bing. The idea is to do away with false news, thus, users will use themselves to know if the information is trustworthy or not.

On the other hand, Bing can apply this label to any page that has the market ClaimReview of schema.org, integrated within the page, however, the pages also must meet a series of basic criteria for its full operation.

Among them we have a completely transparent analysis on sources and methods, with citations and references to original sources included, something that many websites do not enjoy should contain claims and verifications fully verified through the Fact Check verification content, with a comprehensive report, among other things.

With this, readers will be able to determine and know what has been reviewed and the conclusions reached in such a case; to finalize the website hosting the ClaimReview markup must have a summary of the “Fact Check” and the concise evaluation of the full text. As we see something quite complete, but not so complex.

However, not only will those criteria be considered, since the tech giant Microsoft adds that other factors will come into effect. Without a doubt, Bing wants its search engine to work in a correct and above all, safe for its users.
