How could Facebook and Google know that the website they banned from Google Adsense contains fake news? Many legitimate online news media shout foul when their popular daily news platforms are deindexed. This results in the tremendous decline in their Google ads revenue. American companies that hire Filipino writers under American pen names have to lay off writers.

[VIDEO]: Mocha Uson, a Filipino entertainer-turned-Duterte die-hard supporter uses her Facebook page to spread fictitious and false information about pressing issues in the Philippines, from the role the USAID plays in the country to malicious and false news concerning other government officials, eliciting unwarranted hate from the public. The said Facebook page widens the rift between those who support the current administration and those who are critical of it.
Advantage and Disadvantage to Filipinos
Filipino online entrepreneurs take advantage of the situation. They set up their own media platforms online. Their advantage is seen if they know how the web technology works, have the expertise in writing online, and knowledgeable in managing fellow Filipino writers in expanding their own business.
Mocha Uson’s Sentiments
Mocha Uson who is a sexy celebrity starlet turned media host blames the fall back to her critics. It is evident that when a Facebook page receives various reports, FB temporarily or permanently blocks it depending on the offense cited. However, not only false news sites, pages or other functionality are taken down by both Facebook and Google online giants – the sources of real-time true news from real people are also discontinued.
Fact Checks can Lead to the Truth
A news can seem too good to be true or hilarious – but fact-checking from credible sources can be verified through Google, according to Mocha Uson. Sometimes, she posts some fresh news from direct sources that no other sources have them. Therefore, proofs are necessary for these types of content through videos and other verifiable materials.
Videos, documentations, and images can be set-up using credible accounts to aid Facebook and Google’s crawlers into determining if the news is fake or not. It is vital to always follow the best practices surrounding Google Authorship. An author’s credibility is essential for proving that the news is not fake. It must be linked to an official Social Media account and bears the real name that matches a credit card or other financial proof that the person exists – such as in the Google Adsense’s system.
