The danger of filter bubbles

“… The filter bubble was a phenomenon that was described in its early shape by Cass Sunstein in his seminal Republic.com, where he described the rise of the ‘Daily Me’, an information filter where people hear only what they want to hear and read only what they want to read. Filter bubbles can be self-imposed, but most worrying, they can be imposed to us by external forces, such as Internet intermediaries and search engines.” (video)
