Google (goog) has long resisted efforts to allow access to its content for the benefit of anyone.
But that’s changing, and it’s changing in a way that might surprise the people who rely on it.
On Tuesday, the company said it will begin offering its free porn for educational purposes.
The move comes after a report from the Washington Post found that Google is using ads to promote content that doesn’t belong to Google.
That means that when you visit the Google homepage, you’ll see ads for pornography.
It’s the kind of thing Google has done before.
But this is different.
Google told Business Insider that it will start offering porn for the educational purposes of schools as part of a wider initiative to give users a wider range of content.
It said that its partnership with the Education Department has created opportunities for the company to reach a broader range of audiences and to be more effective.
“Education is a huge opportunity for us and the work we’re doing with the Department of Education has given us the opportunity to give students more access to our content,” a Google spokesperson told Business Insiders.
“We are happy to partner with the Government of the United States to provide the most appropriate content for students to learn about, with access to, and access to the best content on the web.”
