Round Up: All of Google’s jokes for April Fools’ 2013, from Google Maps treasure hunting to YouTube closing - The Next Web
Every year, Google goes all out for April Fools’ Day. The company not only pulls together more jokes than all the other tech giants, but the company makes a point to outdo itself too. It honestly gets difficult to keep track of everything Google thinks up, so like last year we’re putting together a roundup.

"If you recognize something as a fake or untrue, not correcting it can sometimes be as bad as repeating it." -

David Cohn, serial entrepreneur and founder of journalism startup Circa, to Poynter. A cites fake images circulated in the wake of Hurricane Sandy last year as an example. The Atlantic did some stellar work then, debunking doctored photos.

Cohn has a point in saying journalists shouldn’t just ignore false alarms, they should actively spread the word about what’s fake along with what’s real.

"When a newspaper moves online, the bundle falls apart. Readers don’t flip through a mix of stories, advertisements, and other bits of content. They go directly to a particular story that interests them, often ignoring everything else." -

Nicholas Carr in a 2008 column, as quoted by Jay Rosen, who adds:

"That’s a power shift. And it leads directly to: Sources said the website (AllThingsD) is receiving a lot of “inbound interest” from potential buyers…”
