Back in the day, a dog was a man’s best friend. These days, it’s Google. The tech behemoth effectively runs popular information, granting everyone with Internet access to the world’s collective knowledge. With all there is circulating on the Internet, the conundrum presently lies in the over-saturation of information – how does one discern between good and bad data? At a period in history when anyone can break a story, Google has answered the call by launching News Lab – an all-encompassing web hub designed to help journalists (burgeoning and otherwise) organize, research, and distribute stories efficiently and directly. Accordingly, the company has created tutorials to use native features like Reverse Image Searching and Public Data Exploration, while elsewhere underlining Google Play Newsstand, Google News and Partner Programming as means to get the pressing stories in front of the right eyes. While the number of tutorials may seem daunting, in a world where anything can happen, maybe News Lab is just the edge reporters need. Head over here to start exploring the site.
