Algorithmic filter bubbles on the Internet limit the diversity of viewpoints we see and make it easier to spread fabricated information.
sandra alvaro's insight:
The US elections showcased post-truth politics. The impact of false news on the results not only demonstrates the social influence of the Internet, it also highlights the misinformation that exists there. The rise of this phenomenon is also closely linked to the role of the social networks as a point of access to the Internet. Face with this situation, the solutions lie in diversifying the control of information, artificial intelligence, and digital literacy.
