Google Images has recently introduced a new feature that allows users to fact check information on images they find online. The new feature, as Google stated, is geared towards helping users make informed judgements about the visual component of the web. The fact check label added to Google Images provides users with key information about images including contextual data about the origin and authenticity of the visual.
“Now, when you search on Google Images, you may see a “Fact Check” label under the thumbnail image results. When you tap one of these results to view the image in a larger format, you’ll see a summary of the fact check that appears on the underlying web page. These labels may appear both for fact check articles about specific images and for fact check articles that include an image in the story.”
