Toronto Star: Google’s negligence on fake reviews is yet another reason to take action against Big Tech

Toronto Star: Google’s negligence on fake reviews is yet another reason to take action against Big Tech. “I’ve documented thousands of fake reviews across multiple review platforms, involving everyone from doctors to lawyers to home contractors to dog walkers. It’s not just deceived consumers who are being hurt, either. Honest businesses must vie against cheaters who lure customers with fake positive reviews. But the real beneficiaries of this fraud are the review sites and the tech companies who continue to rake in advertising dollars with a wink and a nod to the cheaters. None of the review platforms appear too serious about cleaning up fraud on their sites, and Google is at the top of that list.”
