News, Accidents, Robberies & Incidents | How to Tips |
20 Dec 2017, Durban: Nowadays it's very easy to unknowingly engage in a social media post where the photos or content is actually either old or fake. Therefore it's very important to do a spot check to see if the content you're about the engage with, is in fact true.
Long story short, a very active member of News, Accidents, Robberies & Incidents shared a photo with NARI and confirmed that the photo was taken an hour or so ago.
NARI did a reverse photo search (watch the video of this search below) and the search results confirmed the photo to be legit. But that wasn't all! When you do a reverse image search, the search results will find all identical images on the web (if any) and the search results will also "guess what the image" represents for example: "Beach", "car", "Man standing" etc...
Google's best guess for this image came up as: WASTE
On my second reverse search, 2 days later, Google's best guess for this image has changed to: SOIL
