I agree with what the author is arguing. I think when people search on Google, it makes them feel as if they are now an expert on that topic. Typing words into Google should not be considered research. As Nichols (2017) points out, “research requires the ability to find authentic information, summarize it, analyze it, write it up, and present it to other people” (p. 111). There is a lot of misinformation on the Internet, and not everything found using Google should be trusted.
