San Francisco sources reported that after grabbing headlines for showing results related to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the search of the word "Feku" in May, Google algorithms are again hogging the limelight. Meanwhile this time it shows images of US President Donald Trump for a search of the word "idiot".
Accordingly CNET reported on Thursday stated that the latest image onslaught is apparently the result of a campaign by online activists who are manipulating Google's algorithm by linking the word to an image of Trump. Moreover according to a report in The Guardian this week, the trend began with Reddit users up voting a post containing a photo of Trump and the word. Meanwhile the campaign to link the word "idiot" with the US president's images has taken the form of an online protest as it is spearheaded by people who are not happy with Trump's policies.
Furthermore by helping prioritize information presented in search results,
Google's algorithms have played stellar role in the rise of the company, but at
times they have also played the spoilsport. Earlier in May, a Google search for
the name "Pappu" led to results related to Congress President Rahul
Gandhi. Moreover "Feku" and "Pappu" are less than flattering names
given by the opponents of parties of Modi and Gandhi. Further in April, Google
showed pictures of Modi if one searched for "India's first Prime
Minister" until the glitch was corrected by the global search engine.
