With thousands of news articles published online every day, the information overload can be overwhelming, and challenging as well to distinguish fact from fiction.

Google and Facebook have been on the receiving end of criticism lately, for facilitating the spread of fake news and offensive information.

In a bid to combat this, Google has rolled out ‘Fact Check’, a new tool that highlights articles in its search box, indicating which news results have been verified. The new tags is available in all languages for users worldwide.
