Google is going to introduce ‘News Feed’ like Facebook. Before searching anything accessing Google, news, videos, music and many more will be displayed in the home page. But, what the Google Feed of the Google Homepage will contain depends on the previous search history record of the users. An option named ‘Follow’ will be available for the users beside the Search Results, clicking which preferred topics can be selected in Google Homepage.
Besides, contents of different publishers are also likely to be available in Google’s News Feed to avoid filter bubble effects, so that other topics are shown too, besides the desired ones.
A researcher from Enders Analysis said in this regard-This new addition will help Google to compete with the rivals. Currently, Facebook News Feed is the strongest competitor of Google. They are trying to find out different ways to make the users to click on contents.
Last year, at the beginning, Google launched the News Feed feature in their smartphone app on trial basis. Firstly, Google decided to restrict the News Feed facility only in the United States. But, later changing the decision, Google informed that ‘Google Feed’ would be added to Google.com too.
