Is the New Google News Only a High-Tech Echo Chamber Now?

At the time that Google News first appeared online initially, the intention of Google was to target the lucrative morning newspaper habit that millions of people across America relied on to start their day. It was evident that Google News did succeed in making people switch off from the traditional newspaper and allowing them to browse its extensive listings every morning. In the wake of news that Google has revamped its entire service, there was a large number of people trying to determine how much their tried-and-true Google News was changed. By most accounts, the change has been positive and has changed huge areas of the service however, significant areas that make up that Google News experience have been left unaltered.

The brand new and improved Google News continues to display the latest news stories in the middle of the display; however, in the present, the right margin can be used to keep an eye on a list of the biggest global events. This is what Google now calls its Spotlight The space also lists many local news stories as well. While the previous Google News had twin columns of news stories listed according to categories on its main webpage, this latest design only has one column. It appears that it was designed with an eye to making things more simple and less distracting visual, but the effect overall is just one of added complexity. Let’s look at the most important aspects of all changes on Google News.

The first thing you’ll find with Google News now is that it’s easy to customize it. The brand new regular News for You service will provide you with local news that is customized and socially edited reading material. The news websites that you most frequently read, are pushed into the top of the page as well. A source of news that you find regularly to be the most attractive is usually featured higher than the rest of the general news content available. The site also has a communal sharing function. Each set of articles with the same theme is linked together to provide hyperlinks to fresh sources of information about the subject.

Of course, being able to alter your news sources to ensure you only hear the news that is interesting to you is not the primary reason people find reading essential. To have multiple filters working for you screening all of the news sources available ensures that you will only get to hear information that you can agree with. The less exposure you have to opinions that are contrary to your own, the less knowledgeable you are, coming away of the encounter.

However, as you ensure that Google News doesn’t go on to become your sole source of knowledge about the world, and instead is used to augment it, these changes should be very productive.
