TED Talks: What FACEBOOK And GOOGLE Are Hiding From The World – YouTube

on March 20, 2014

I found this Ted Talk quite confronting.  Maybe I am naive but I had no idea that the information I receive on the internet has gone through filters and is  tailored to what it thinks I want or am interested in. You really don’t decide on what gets put in or taken out of the information you receive.  I might be over reacting but it made feel quite uncomfortable to think algorithms are filtering the information I receive.I would love your feed back on this, it only goes for 8 minutes and even if you only watch some of it I think it will make you think.
