7 People Who Don't Post Fake News.

As Human needs for more information exist, more sources are digested. Not all are good for the tummy. Negative news, false news, that targets the emotional appetites of people on the consumers of Social Media. As more and more babies grow up only to be reattached to another umbilical cord, the IoT. Actually 2.9 cords for every home. 

More than half (52%) of all U.S. Internet homes have at least one TV connected to the Internet, representing an increase of six million homes over the past year, according to The NPD Group Connected Intelligence Connected Home Entertainment Report.
While the types of devices being used to connect these televisions to the Internet are varied (video game consoles, streaming media players, Blu-ray disc players, and the TVs themselves), the average connected TV home had nearly three (2.9) devices installed that they could use for programming from apps on their televisions.
Base: U.S. Internet households
Devices are connected to the Internet, not just capable.

Ipad, Laptops, Phones, Xbox Consoles, Voice Assistants like Alexa, Echo and Google home, watches, spectacles - (millennial version of Google Glass?), some of us have 10 devices per human.

Oops.. almost forgot the next frontier.. Appliances..

Add Washer/Dryer and Refrigerator to the list of devices. Toilets, Door and Garage Door Entry Systems, Automobiles, Children's Monitoring Devices, Thermostats, Televisions, Shoes, Wristbands, Wearables.. Plug into the Matrix much?

Google's John Mueller: My Friend's Web Site Has No Links & Ranks In Google Well

We know a year ago, Matt Cutts said Google did try turning off links in their ranking algorithm and the results were horrible. We also know that Yandex, the huge Russian search engine, did remove links from a niche segment in their ranking algorithm when that segment was spammed to death.

Google's First Part Of Query Analysis Is Entities Discovery

Again, at SMX West last week, Paul Haahr from Google said that when Google launched their knowledge graph in 2012, they decided to put entities at the forefront of their query analysis.
He explained that in order to show knowledge panels, the query needs to understand if there is any entity data there. So they moved that to the first part of the query analysis back in 2012, in order to surface knowledge graph data.
