The goal? To burst the “filter bubble” that surrounds us with people we like and content that we agree with.
The term “filter bubble” entered the public domain back in 2011when the internet activist Eli Pariser coined it to refer to the way recommendation engines shield people from certain aspects of the real world.
Pariser used the example of two people who googled the term “BP”. One received links to investment news about BP while the other received links to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, presumably as a result of some recommendation algorithm.
This is an insidious problem. Much social research shows that people prefer to receive information that they agree with instead of information that challenges their beliefs. This problem is compounded when social networks recommend content based on what users already like and on what people similar to them also like.
This is the filter bubble—being surrounded only by people you like and content that you agree with.
And the danger is that it can polarise populations creating potentially harmful divisions in society.

Se potessi vivere di nuovo la mia vita.
Nella prossima cercherei di commettere più errori.
Non cercherei di essere così perfetto, mi rilasserei di più.
Sarei più sciocco di quanto non lo sia già stato,
di fatto prenderei ben poche cose sul serio.
Sarei meno igienico.
Correrei più rischi,
Non ti scrivo!
Pensare che gli altri ti tratteranno bene perché tu tratti bene loro, è come pensare che uno squalo non ti mangerà perché tu non mangi lui.
Infatti come per gli squali la chiave esatta è “non rompere i coglioni”.
