Eli Pariser on Internet Information Filters

Mar 12, 2012 Published under Introspection, Media and Alternative Media

To further aggravate the concern I’ve shared in the past about how we self-select entertainment over information and how we tend to look for “news” that reaffirms our beliefs rather than challenges us to hear other perspectives, I just came across this good TED talk by Eli Pariser from last year, where he points out how internet companies are reinforcing that bias by presenting to us more of what they think we want based on what we’ve clicked in the past, shutting out important information that may be less fun but more necessary.
