CH 8 Projects: Question 1


Safe search has two different options: Show most relevant results and Filter explicit results. Filter explicit results option filters explicit content for images videos and websites. I surfed for explicit content that could be objectionable for children’s use and most of the content was filtered. Instead of my search leading to adult websites, the searches showed me news articles and blogs related to my words in the search. In my opinion, this feature works really well but there is still content that could be objectionable to children and Google states that SafeSearch is not 100% accurate.  The cons of the SafeSearch is it only applies to adult content. For example, I searched for “buy gun” and it gave me several online options as well as near by stores. Also, SafeSearch does not appear to restrict a user from searching for violent video games.
