In this paper we present a large data set of news items from well-known aggregators such as Google News and Yahoo! However, the increased proliferation and potential impact of fake news in the 2016 presidential election represents a sea-change, one in which Google’s AdSense programme and Google’s relationship to the second biggest online advertiser, Facebook, looms large. In response, this paper assesses the coverage of scholarly databases and impact indicators during March 21, 2020 to April 18, 2020. The rapidly increasing volume of research is particularly accessible through Dimensions, and less through Scopus, the Web of Science, and PubMed. Researchers needing wide scope literature searches (rather than health-focused PubMed or medRxiv searches) should start with Dimensions (or Google Scholar) and can use tweet and Mendeley reader counts as indicators of likely importance. A few COVID-19 papers from the 21,395 in Dimensions were already highly cited, with substantial news and social media attention. They illustrate how search engines and social networking sites are becoming more and more integral to how people find information online and, in the process, change the conditions for content production. In recent years, we have seen headlines like ‘4 Changes Google is Making and How They Affect Content Creation’, ‘Facebook Says Publishers Shouldn’t Fret about News Feed Changes’ and ‘Twitter “Related Headlines” Deliver News’.
Which website, networking service or search engine is most likely to affect democracy through its use of algorithms? The greater the amount of engagement, the more data Facebook can use to sell advertisements (O’Neil 2016, online). This paper examines how: (1) brands have been forced to adapt to a changing landscape; (2) to evaluate the adtech options available to brands for monitoring and blocking the placement of advertisements; (3) Google, Facebook and adtech vendors have responded to advertiser calls for more controls and (4) brand managers can implement a brand safety plan of their own. The framework is grounded in prior frameworks of information quality and the analysis of two cases of large-scale online news aggregators: Google News and Facebook News. Two of which sources were mainstream mediasources and the other two sources as alternative media. In order for an advertising company to work as a ‘Google Partner’, they need to employ at least two members of staff who are currently accredited as AdWords professionals. There are several reasons the Australian experiment won’t work in the United States. Most of our work is digital. Six sets of search strings were developed to identify relevant media coverage of both the Yukon Study and the Ireland Bill (see search strings in Appendix A).
Equivalent search strings were run in the web-based search engines Google and Google News, capturing the first 100 hits for each string; no date limits were set because web-based search engines can indicate date only in year segments (e.g., in the past year). In particular, articles that are extensively tweeted on the day first indexed are likely to be highly read and relatively highly cited 3 weeks later. This data set is tailored for evaluative comparisons in predictive analytics tasks, although allowing for tasks in other research areas such as topic detection and tracking, sentiment analysis in short text, first story detection or news recommendation. Whatsapp connects all our phonebook contacts and makes it easier to send and receive messages in different formats be it text, audio or video. 9. Without using the lower third basic principle of the video. Using Google, we searched the top ten articlesfrom four online media news sources.
LinkedIn. The data collected relates to a period of 8 months, between November 2015 and July 2016, accounting for about 100,000 news items on four different topics: economy, microsoft, obama and palestine. Ellis (2016, online) explains how three factors shape the online lives of citizens of digital societies: “the endless search for convenience, widespread ignorance as to how digital technologies work, and the sacrifice of privacy and security to relentless improvements in the efficiency of e-commerce”. “Not since Rockefeller and JP Morgan has there been such a concentration of wealth and power in the hands of so few” explains Hazen (2017, online). The search period for news coverage of AWLs related to the Yukon Study was September 1, 2017, to August 15, 2018, covering 3 months before the media release announcing the launch of the new AWLs and 6 months after the media release announcing the study’s resumption in February 2018. The search period for news coverage of AWLs related to the Ireland Bill was April 16, 2018, to April 30, 2019, covering the 6 months before and after the Ireland Bill was signed into law in October 2018. These timeframes were selected in accordance with the main media events connected to both contexts; each site had an approximately 1-year search period to ensure feasibility of the study parameters.
