Google updates its feed to offer more personalised news

Google has taken steps to prevent another massive phishing attack

The new, predictive search feed will get a lot more exposure because it will stream on the launch page of Google's namesake mobile app on Android and Apple (AAPL) mobile devices beginning on Wednesday. This feature evolved with Google Now on Tap and some of these features have moved onto Google Assistant while others have been left behind in the Google application.

Similar to Facebook, Google is introducing the ability to add and subtract certain topics of interest.

Yankees closing in on acquiring Todd Frazier, David Robertson
Even though Frazier is a third baseman by trade , he has played some first base and likely will land there once he goes to NY . Is Polo anything more than a fun name? The loss dropped the Yankees to 48-45 and was their 22nd defeat in 32 games.

The Editors' Choice section on Google Play has always been a fan favorite, but we're kicking it up a notch by adding better curation to help you find high quality apps and games that you'll love. Unlike Google Now, Feed's list of information is based on the topics that the user follows, but it uses the Google Search history and Chrome browsing history to accumulate information to present relevant and personalised results. But Google's feed is different from Facebook in that it displays information based on you, not shared by your friends.

The new offering is called "Google Feed", a name that may conjure comparisons to Facebook's "News Feed", a feature on Facebook used to browse updates from friends, family and other sources. Here one can "Follow" a topic in order to help Google customize your content. And will not only be related with your interactions with Google but it will show you the trends in your area and around the world. In most news feeds, old content is deemed irrelevant, but, in this case, Google is promoting it as a strength. It will try to achieve this by taking a page from Facebook and essentially creating its own News Feed-style interface. Because Google has insight into much of your online life, it can also give you information when it thinks you are in the right time and place to receive it. A follow button will appear next to certain types of results - including movies, sports teams, music artists or bands, famous people, and more. Thankfully, for Google, they are still away from the public out lash.

Mayweather v McGregor: Anthony Fowler expects Floyd Mayweather to beat Conor McGregor
Conor's gonna get knocked out . "I just got exhausted of it, but I'm looking forward to seeing Floyd get the victory by knockout". I actually want to put down money on it, the odds aren't that bad.

The feed's primary focus is on content, including news articles and videos that line up with topics you care about. For instance, if you see a story about Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, you can tap on the card in which the story is displayed to follow news and updates about Bezos. Google Now was the first of the company's efforts to bring information to you, rather than the other way around.

Ed Sheeran temporarily quits Twitter over Game of Thrones backlash
But it seems he has removed himself from the online platform again - this time completely closing his account. Sheeran is now on tour in support of his latest album, ÷, which was released in March.
