I had never really noticed much if there was such a thing as a filter bubble in things like my social media, but after reflecting on it, it is easy to see that this concept is extremely prevalent on my Facebook feed. My own filter bubble on Facebook is filled with food preparation videos, pictures of my friends, and outdated Vine compilation. Thinking about this, these are all the aspects of my social media that I find entertaining and click on the most, thus confirming what the filter bubble is.
While a filter bubble from my perspective is extremely useful in filtering out the unnecessary posts of science(for me) and shoots the videos of food to the front, I can understand how this has a negative effect in creating tunnel vision, especially that in the aspect of politics. It was also interesting to see in lecture that this is not just Facebook, but that even search engines such as Google tweak each person’s search results when looking something up.
