We all must have seen some post in facebook timeline saying something bad is gonna happen or here are some tips to earn more money, how to become rich in a week? , etc. You believe everything that comes on the internet / website. Don’t you?
You even make your college notes with the help of Wikipedia. However, did you know that the information in Wikipedia is not always true or accurate? There are lots of websites who post such fraud news and articles (Wikipedia is a different case).
Now, the Google and Facebook are preparing to cut off their connection with such fraud / fake news website.

Some websites made a huge money from such fake and baseless news. Now, the Google is implementing a change to its AdSense publisher’s policy, to stop publishing ads in fake news websites.
According to the Google’s official statement:
Users don’t want to be misled by the content they engage with online. For this reason, Google ads may not a placed on pages that misrepresent, misstate, or conceal information about you, your content or the primary purpose of your web property.
“The goal of the search is to provide the most relevant and useful results for our users,” Andrea Faville, a Google spokeswoman, said in a statement.
Alongside with the Google, the largest social networking media Facebook also updated their advertising policy earlier. “We have updated the policy to explicitly clarify that this applies to fake news,” a Facebook spokesperson told WSJ That means, the Facebook will also disable support for the promotion of page that shares fake/fraud news. They made some changes to the coding algorithm, that detects such fraud/fake news pages.
Now, let’s talk about the effect of the new policy for Nepali websites. At first, AdSense does not support the Nepali language as the primary language. However, you can use AdSense code to the unsupported language to some extent.
So, do we have to worry?
Actually yes, AdSense doesn’t support the Nepali language, does not mean that it does not understand. Moreover, some people are already offering a helping hand to the Google.
Good move! Hey @google let me know if you need help identifying hoax/false news site in Nepali language. @AdSense https://t.co/C8PC6Pq2Cv

If you ask me, I think Google and Facebook should have done it earlier. Nevertheless, such move from these companies will discourage such people / websites to make the fuss or spread such fake news. This will also improve the internet surfing experience too.
Watch out fakers, you are going to lose your AdSense partnership soon.
