How often do you catch the headlines at the start of a major daily news bulletin, only to find that the story you were interested in is crudely tacked onto the end after you have endured half an hour of stories that don’t matter to you?
Google News eradicates this problem by only delivering the news that you are interested in. In fact, your news content is devised through various means, including your region and previous stories that you have clicked on. The more you use Google News
, the better it gets at narrowing down your content and ensuring that superfluous stories are nowhere to be found. In developing its News service, Google has strived to get the balance right between its algorithmic search efficiency and the needs of its publishing partners to push the hottest news to the forefront – and Editor’s Picks is a good example of obtaining this balance. Situated in the right-hand toolbar on your main Google News page, Editor’s Picks allows you to flick through a range of around ten different news sources and then get the hottest stories from each source delivered in a list. In the following tutorial we will guide you through the process of exploring Editor’s Picks in order to get the best that each news source has to offer.
