Despite many criticisms of Google’s algorithm and its negative effects on privacy and democracy, its data mining practices have produced some positive outcomes. Despite Baidu’s huge popularity in China, its revenues are lower compared to those of Google on a global comparison. Despite the presence of laws against child pornography, trafficking, and cybercrime, the Philippines has become known as a key hub of the billion-dollar global child cybersex industry. Objective. The objective of this study was to provide insight on SEACO in the Philippines. Advances in information and communication technologies facilitate opportunities for sexual exploitation and abuse of children online (SEACO). Ellis (2016, online) explains how three factors shape the online lives of citizens of digital societies: “the endless search for convenience, widespread ignorance as to how digital technologies work, and the sacrifice of privacy and security to relentless improvements in the efficiency of e-commerce”. Spikes in search volume are currently hard to interpret but have the benefit of increasing vigilance. The study tests the extent to which such retracted scientific articles are still highly ranked in Google -and more so than information about the retraction. A case study shows, however, that such fake sciencecan be visible in Google even after the article was retracted, in fact more visible thanthe retraction notice.
In the latter case, the article can be retracted upon discovery of the fraud. Fake news can originate from an ordinary person carelessly posting what turns out to be false information orfrom the intentional actions of fake news factory workers,but broadly speaking it can also originate from scientific fraud. We conduct anempiricalstudy drawing on records of articles retracted due to fraud (fabrication of data) in the Retraction Watch public database. We hypothesize that the reason for this lies in the popularity-based logic governing Google, in particular its foundational PageRank algorithm,in conjunction with a psychological law which we refer to as the “law of retraction”: a retraction notice is typically taken to be less interestingand therefore less popular with internet users than the original content retracted. We find, among other things, thatboth Google Search and Google Scholar more often than not rankeda link to the original article higher than a link indicating that the article has been retracted.Surprisingly, Google Scholar did not perform better in this regard than Google Search.We also foundcases in which Google didnot track the retraction of anarticle on the first result page at all.We conclude thatboth Google Search and Google Scholar runthe risk of disseminating fake science through theirranking algorithms.
The Code also includes a set of “minimum standards” for providing advance notice of changes to algorithmic ranking and presentation of news; appropriately recognising original news content; and providing information about how and when Google and Facebook make available user data collected through users’ interactions with news content. In the original vision outlined by Brin and Page, advertisements are always an indication of failure, but today represent the overwhelming majority of Google’s revenue. However, this article aims to show that Google’s business draws everyone online into various immaterial labour arrangements with far reaching consequences, many of which are difficult to detect. The transformation that has been observed where searches are primarily being done on mobile devices this actually becomes the next benchmark for Google and is actually very critical for the company’s future in this business. National policies and preventive measures are needed to stem this crime. It is a very effective app but the feeds are passive.
But Google hasn’t given up on organized, personalized news feeds. The draft News Media Bargaining Code, as it currently stands, requires Google and Facebook to negotiate with news media businesses in good faith over all issues relevant to news on digital platform services, including the payment for the inclusion of news on their services. Its aim is to address bargaining power imbalances between Australian news media businesses and digital platforms, specifically Google and Facebook. Her work consists of managing Twitter likes and increasing Facebook engagement. Based on the rRMSE, models that combined Google (and Twitter data where available) with autoregressive information showed better predictive accuracy for 1-week ahead predictions. The publishers will undergo a mix of quantitative and qualitative market research, looking at existing and potential reader segments in an attempt to better understand the addressable market, readers willingness to pay and more. This article draws from a particular group of thinkers, a group of Italian Neo-Marxists, loosely connected to the ‘workerism’ (operaismo) movement during the 1960s and 1970s, in order to better contextualise contemporary digital capitalism.
