What is Lorem Ipsum?

It would be great service if Google were to identify a political ad clearly as a paid-for advertisement, removing all confusion as to whether it is ditorial matter or not. It is welcome that Google will publicise who pays for political ads in the 2019 general elections in India and will also try to crack down on fake news. This is of the essence, and other major technology companies, particularly Facebook and Twitter must follow suit. Since Whatsapp does not carry ads, its contribution would be, or rather, should be, to weed out fake news on its platform, the most widely accessed social media platform in India.

Lorem Ipsum┬áis simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
