Filter Bubbles and Echo Chambers

echo chambers

When we get our news from social media we can unintentionally create our own filter bubbles and echo chambers. This is what happens when we retweet, like, share posts from our friends, people we follow or feeds we are interested in. It creates a space where we are only shown things we are interested in. This means that we don’t have as much of an opportunity to be exposed to ideas or people as we are only really shown things we are most likely to be interested in.
