Google and Facebook will restrict fake news from ads network

Both Google and Facebook have announced plans to go after the revenue of fake news sites by restricting the news and ads that contain clickbait.

Google first updated its policy saying that the company will try to ban sites that “misrepresent, misstate, or conceal information.” Websites who don’t comply with this rule will get banned from using Google AdSense.

Going to Facebook, the company has also updated its policy to rule out fake news sites from using Facebook Audience Network. “Our team will continue to closely vet all prospective publishers and monitor existing ones to ensure compliance,” a Facebook spokesman said in a statement.

Google uses a combination of algorithms and human moderation to decide whether a site is eligible to use its advertising service. AdSense ads will no longer appear on these sites and once closed the financial resources.

Facebook also will prevent the site from their viral advertising news in the social media.
