Filter Bubbles

  • Filter bubble: your own unique universe online, you don’t decide what gets in, you don’t see what’s edited out
    • Future aspirational selves vs. present selves, they are mainly looking at what you click on first, no information balance
    • Broadcasting society, gatekeepers controlling information now Internet swept in. However it became human gatekeepers to algorithmic gatekeepers. Algorithms are going to curate the world, show things that are uncomfortable, challenging points of views
    • Algorithms need: sense of public life and civic responsibilities, transparency and control for humans
    • The filter bubbles are not letting us see what we need to see, not what we want to see
