Stephen Dale's curator insight, March 24, 4:54 AM

Put simply - Google (and for that matter any commercial search engine) may skew search results to promote their own commercial interests. The question to ask yourself is "are the (search) results good enough?" - I'd say in Google's defence "yes they are".

 

Reading time: 5mins

Ian M Cooper Cole, JFS Marketing Consutants's curator insight, March 27, 8:13 AM

This is so true, we all think we can rely on Google as a credible source. But they use an arbitrary algorithm which is created and constantly modified by a an insular team of silicon valley kids.

Their primary motivation is profit for Google, not our well being or enlightenment. Google has double the amount of advertising space on their search page in tha last 4 years.

The algorithm says new is better than old information, which may be true when it comes to searching "plane crash" but for "thanksgiving turkey recipes" ?

This is a good read.

rwestby's curator insight, March 29, 8:07 PM

 A bit of a lengthy read but certainly worth a look and the thoughts it provokes.

Journalists must see beyond religion to understand people's actions

Journalists must see beyond religion to understand people's actions | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
Journalist and academic argue that we need to see below the religious veneer
As an atheist, I didn’t expect to be engaged by a panel debate about religion.
Andy Bull's insight:

From the post: "In modern multi-cultural Britain... religious literacy is essential.

"But the problem is that we are illiterate because our journalism is just not fit for purpose in terms of covering religion. The BBC has no editor of religion and there is no centre of expertise to consult at our public service broadcaster."
