Now when you Google something, you'll know if it's true (in some cases).
Google launched a new Fact Check label that'll show up on some search results for claims that have been, well, fact-checked. The image above shows what it'll look like when you Google something that's been scoped out by a credible fact-checking publisher. In these cases it's PolitFact and Snopes.
For stories that have been fact-checked, your Google search will show you extra information about what the claim is about, who made the claim, and what publisher investigated the truth behind the claim.
Google hopes this feature will help people be more informed.
"Even though differing conclusions may be presented, we think it’s still helpful for people to understand the degree of consensus around a particular claim and have clear information on which sources agree," Google said in a news release Friday. "As we make fact checks more visible in search results, we believe people will have an easier time reviewing and assessing these fact checks, and making their own informed opinions."
Other companies have been trying stop the spread of "fake news" too. Last December, Facebook added its own fact-check labels. And CNET says Facebook and Google changed their advertising policies to prevent fake news stories from making money.
