Click Restraint: Crash Course Navigating Digital Information #9


Hi, I’m John Green and this is Crash Course, Navigating Digital Information. So you know when you take a slice of pizza
out of the microwave and it’s extremely hot? But you’re so hungry that you decide to
just fight through the pain and take a bite anyway. Whereupon you confirm that you’re basically
eating hot lava and now your tongue is burnt, and also you couldn’t even really taste
the pizza so you put it back down for like 10 seconds, blow on it, and then try again. And then you continue that cycle until your
meal is actually cool enough to eat but by then of course have no more taste buds. Right. What I’m saying is that patience is a hard-earned skill for humans, especially when you’re really hungry. And on the Internet, I at least am hungry
for information basically all the time. I want to know about the news stories I care
about so much that I will scroll through endless posts and wikipedia edits and even god help me youtube comments looking for more information, and when I am done getting all the known information about that story, I will scroll through endless speculation while I wait for more facts to
come out, because I am incredibly bad at being patient. But also, the architecture of the social internet tells you not to be patient–it tells you that if you load more tweets or see more posts, there will always be something new, something that could be very important, and the ubiquity of newness can make it difficult for us to read an entire article that was published
yesterday because uggg that is literally so yesterday. So instead maybe I should just read the headline and then see if there’s anything new on facebook, which there always is, and then
I’m scrolling and scrolling and ENOUGH. Approaching the Internet this way has left
me with a lot of bad habits that don’t actually help me find the answers I’m looking for. So today we’re going to learn a skill to
help break that bad habit of impatience called click restraint. INTRO During this series so far, we’ve talked
a lot about what to do when encountering new information online like before believing and
sharing, we need to find out who is behind the information and what evidence there is
for their claims. We also want to find out what other sources say. One of the strengths of the Internet is that
there are always more sources, so if you’re not sure about a claim, or you can’t decide
whether a source is reliable, then you should try to find another reliable source. But often, the problem actually isn’t finding
multiple sources to corroborate or verify claims–because there are many, many, many sources for almost anything. Like, if you search for “Flat Earth Theory,”
you will get like seven million results debating whether the Earth is flat, and it would take
you a lifetime to look through the all. That’s not a challenge, by the way. Don’t do that. You have but one wild and precious life, my
friends. Spend it knowing that the Earth is roughly
spherical. My point is that understanding information
is not about finding multiple sources; it’s about finding multiple reliable sources when conducting a search. It’s about learning what expertise is and
when to trust it. But when many of us search the Internet, we pick from among the top two search engine results even though there might be literally
millions of results to choose from. But researchers from the Stanford History
Education Group found that fact checkers, who confirm facts and debunk myths for a living, spend more time on search results than like everyone else does. They typically scroll through the entire first
page of search results, and sometimes even check the second or third page, as they decide what looks most promising. And they practice what researchers call click restraint. Instead of immediately clicking the first
thing they see, fact checkers /restrain/ themselves. They scan results to check out their options, get a sense of what sources are available and what information is on offer, and then,
based on what they’re looking for, make informed decisions about which websites to visit first. So obviously there’s, you know, a lot of
content to sift through on the Internet, and a search engine’s job is to sort all of
that for you, but search engines don’t just like arrive on the web fully-formed. There is no search engine stork dropping them on Silicon Valley doorsteps. Humans create and manage search engines, so the results they produce via complex algorithms are not somehow separate from human fallibility. Algorithms are human products just as much as this table is a human product, and this physical representation of a virtual representation of a physical flower is a human product. What I’m saying is that algorithms are not
objective. There’s always going to a degree of human
influence, even if that degree is supposed to be small. Now before we go any further, I want to highlight a potential conflict of interest here. This series is funded in part by a grant from Google, which is a search company. As part of the grant, they viewed final scripts of these videos, but they did not write or edit them. The content of these videos was developed
by the Stanford History Education Group, not google, but I think it’s important to reiterate
here that Google did help fund the series. Having said that search engines like Google are profoundly fallible and they are subject to human influences, and they are shaped both by the people who work on those search engines and also by the people who use them. So when you enter a keyword into any search engine, it doesn’t spit out a list of sources ranked by trustworthiness. Instead they sort links based on a variety
of factors using an algorithm — a set of rules or operations a computer follows to
complete a task. And those algorithms, to reiterate, are created by people. Now, the exact algorithms search engines use are secret — that’s why they remain in business. But roughly — and I mean roughly — they
didn’t like tell us any secrets, Google returns results based on (1) How relevant
it thinks a page will be to what you searched for and (2) The quality of the site, based on Google’s own definition of quality. A page might be relevant to your search if
it contains multiple instances of the keyword you searched. Like, if you search “Golden Gate Bridge”
it may surface the official website of the Golden Gate Bridge because it says Golden
Gate Bridge like 12,000 times in key places, like the page title. Quality is a bit more difficult to nail down. One parameter search engines use is how many other sites link to a result, and whether those sites are of high quality. Some search companies also pay individuals around the world to rate the quality of the pages it finds in search, which…is google
hiring? Because I would love that job! I feel like I would be good at it because
I spend a lot of time on the Internet and I have very strong opinions. Google raters do follow a set of guidelines
of course. We’ll link to them in the video description. But also search results aren’t a one-way
street. Like web content creators know roughly how to try to ensure their websites appear higher in search results. This is called search engine optimization. To use a basic example, keywords are important to search results, so if you make a site about doggos and puppers but most people are searching for dogs and puppies, you’d be better off including dogs and puppies in the title. And since linking to other sites can impact
search results, some creators even create websites to link to their websites. Now, that’s considered spam but it’s still
very common. Why? Because many of us click those first couple
links of a search result, getting your site into those spots can be extremely valuable. And research has shown that students interpret the order of search results as an indicator of trustworthiness. As I already mentioned, that’s not actually
the case, but it benefits a website to appear trustworthy… or a YouTube channel for that
matter. Okay, so the first step of click restraint
is /not clicking./ Alright? Take a deep breath. Count to ten. Or, I don’t know. It’s the Internet. Count to three. Send your friend a search time selfie… I don’t… whatever you have to do to not instantly click the first link of your search results. Then scan the result titles and URLs of that
first page of results.. Are there names of major news organizations or blogs you’ve never heard of? From the title you can also sometimes tell
whether a page is a news article, or if it’s presenting an opinion, an op-ed piece, or if it’s just like irrelevant to your search. Next you should scan the snippets below each title. The text under the URL will hint at the webpage’s content. This alone could point you towards the information you’re looking for. Once you’ve compared these results you can try some lateral reading by opening a couple results in new tabs. You know what. Let’s just try out this whole process in
the Thought Bubble. Okay, my friend told me that the Chinese government is buying Walmart. I had not heard anything about that, so I
decided to Google it. I typed in “did China buy Walmart.” And here are the results. The first is called “China Buys Walmart,
Will Rebrand as GreatWallMart” and it’s from thefinaledition.com. Now I’ve never heard of The Final Edition,
and that pun does sound too good to be true. On the other hand the first three words are,
“China Buys Walmart”. A few results down I see stories from Forbes and Business Insider, two business websites, suggesting that the Walton family that owns Walmart has been selling its shares. The seventh result is Walmart’s own website, then comes its Wikipedia page, and a CNN article about Walmart buying a stake in a Chinese retailer from two years ago. From this group of results, Walmart’s own
website is probably the best place to start. While I wouldn’t always trust a company’s
website to tell its own story impartially, I do think they probably know who their owners are. The company page explains how the Walton family came to own Walmart. And then in 2016, they teamed up with Chinese e-commerce company JD.com to form what they called a strategic alliance. Actually, if we go back to that CNN story,
we can confirm that Walmart bought a 5% stake in JD.com. So, no, China did not buy Walmart, but the
retailer did do business with a major Chinese company. Just for kicks, let’s go back to that first
Google result about the GreatWallMart since that was the only source that even hinted
at China buying Walmart. The link leads to a page that looks like a
news article, but when I find the About page for the Final
Edition, it explains that it’s a satirical site that
“aims to be the #1 humor experience on the Internet.” Definitely not a reliable source of news. Good thing I didn’t just click that first
link. Thanks, Thought Bubble. So obviously not all search results will bring up a clear juxtaposition of true news sites, satirical onex, and primary source information. If you’re not finding the kind of results
you need when conducting a search, I do have some tips: First, put the phrase you’re searching for
in quotation marks. That way a search engine will only look for
those words in that order. And if you want to limit your results to one
website domain, add site, colon, then the domain name as in site: youtube.com You can even try site: .edu to search websites sponsored by educational institutions. To eliminate certain words or websites from your search, include a minus sign before the phrase like searching for Wall Street Journal -site:wsj.com will give you results about the Wall Street Journal but none of them from the Journal’s own website. Search engines may be something we use everyday, and we might even know some of these tricks, but that doesn’t make them foolproof. As we’ve noted many times before, when it
comes to evaluating information, there just is no magic bullet. No single path will get you to unimpeachable information. Dare I say you might even want to try the
second page or beyond! Next time, we’ll bring this miniseries to
a close with the second joke I know, and we’ll tackle the great white whale of the contemporary Internet–your social media feed. I’ll see you then.

    10:36 – How To Google 101
    Or, things you should have learned 20 years ago.
    (if you're in your 30s or older)

    And then ironically, John also gives this:
    8:40 – "Did China by Walmart?"
    Or, how to treat a computer like it is a human being, even though you know it isn't a human being, and doesn't think like a human being.
    The Google algorithm searches for a string of words, so a much more effective search would be [China buys Walmart], and then assess the veracity of the results that turn up.

    There's been loads of progress in AI, and there are certainly apps designed so that you can interface with them as though you were talking to a human being, but the Google Homepage Search Window is still, as far as I know, optimized to find character strings.

    Being sponsored by Google, the one topic we are not going to hear in this series is which search engines are best for which types of searches. John talks about "Lateral Reading", but a full coverage of this principle will explain key reasons for using several browsers in parallel, along with several search engines in parallel, and not just several tabs opened laterally.

    I will typically have a minimum of 2 browsers open during any session, and up to 5. And then I will juggle several search engines, depending upon what I'm looking for. A primary reason for multiple browsers is because once you log into a certain account, you are now BUBBLED in on that browser. Switching browsers is the easiest way to break out of your Filter Bubble.

    There is SO MUCH more to cover on this topic. John has decided to end it after 10 episodes. That's sufficient for a kid in elementary school. But nowhere near enough for a serious user of the interwebs.

    As always, I have a question about what is regarded as a "reliable" source, and who exactly determines that.
    There generally seems to be a very specific bias whenever I'm looking up something in terms of both what appears – and more specifically what does not appear.
    There are many instances where this has been my experience, but I will give you just one example:
    Typed in – Politician 'A' criticizes Politician 'B.'
    And got almost two pages of search results with the subject line – Politician 'B' criticizes Politician 'A.'
    Down to about half a page of the same result 5 months later.
    Any news story that differs from the narrative being pushed by the corporate-media is generally buried several pages into a particularly widely used search engine, which may, or may not, be a sponsor of this video.
    When the demonstrable business model for almost all media outlets is solely to be first with a story (the perfunctory retractions and corrections to be added sometime later), exactly what businesses (and they ARE businesses. They are there primarily, if not exclusively, to create ad-revenue and profit) are to be awarded the privilege of being called "reliable" or "legitimate" is not only a concern to that specific company's shareholders, but to the general public as well.
    Not sufficiently examining the salient point of corporate profits for these companies, and how that dictates what will, and what will not appear on the search engines is something of a disappointment.
    All that being said, I appreciate you and CC for attempting to open up some conversations about this topic.

    I find expressing a search as a disconfirmation of the belief to be valuable. So instead of searching "Did China buy Walmart" I'd look for "China didn't buy Walmart", and the fact-checking sites and naysayers tend to leap to the top of the search results, usually sporting their own links to explain their position.

But I trust him so much! And even the in my head John doesn't typically spread misinformation, although we've had some darker conversations. The in my head Hank usually has a call to action, like "yeah its probably time to go" or "Did you get started on that yet cause, you probably should've, a while ago"

    @1:26 It's Friday, March 8th, three days after this video's published date. I couldn't watch on the 5th because I was on mini vacation. I went to that strange and exotic place called Outside… simply put, an amazing place.

    What do you mean, "good thing?" Had you clicked the first link first, you would know the story was false right away, and you could get back to playing FIFA 89.

    So I study library science between 2010 and 2014 and for a while during my time at uni I was really into SEO. I thought it was cool and I wanted to start working with it. Then I realized how much search engine optimization is not about optimizing anything and instead about marketing. I got so frustrated with it and I don't know, I just felt like this was the right place to share my n-yearold frustrations 🙂

    Real power move: call Google, the ones that funded this very video and reviewed the script, profoundly fallible

    Phrasing and defining terms accurately is extremely important in efficient web searching. You get what you ask for seen through the filter of your bubble. If you use a word with a heavy negative connotation, you will get negative results. Try mixing up search terms.

    I used to watch you when I was in high school. 5 Years later, and you look so different.

    7:25 Yeah I linked my blog in the signature of my account on several forums and as such my blog is linked to in every post I make unless the person hosting the forum has flagged them as blocked from being used as such, but not everyone does that so I still got thousands of views on my blog in it's heyday with every new post.

    Good on you John, I come from a time when we had a class period in school that taught how to use the internet. See you put them on the magic of Boolean, great tactic and a powerful jutsu for research in these times of lax fact checking 🙌🏾
