Google Launches News Service edited by partners

Google News has started a new service, still under experimentation, which can only be accessed by some users called "Editor's Pick".

According to the site Mashable after years of having its news generated by algorithms, Google News is testing a new “Editor’s Pick” section with selected publishers, enabling them to select and promote specific content to users.

google newsThe content is chosen by real human beings editors. A small percentage of Google News users will find a new box of content with that label, curated not by Google’s news algorithm, but by real live human news editors at partner news organizations.

Per Google’s official statement on the new feature:

At Google, we run anywhere from 50 to 200 experiments at any given time on our websites all over the world. Right now, we are running a very small experiment in Google News called Editors’ Picks. For this limited test, we’re allowing a small set of publishers to promote their original news articles through the Editors’ Picks section.

Google News, when it was released in 2002, reported that its content were all edited by machines, without the presence of people. The warning was included in all service pages

"This page was generated entirely by computer algorithms without human editors. No humans were harmed or even used in the creation of this page."

Among the partners in the new service, are "The Washington Post," "Newsday", Reuters, and Slate.

Question that comes to my minda is "How are editors picked, and who picks them.
