Here I want to add that I think what is emerging in the current or near future time, whic

Many, many Facebook users still don't know that their news feeds are filtered by an algorithm | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

For heavy Facebook users, let alone social media gurus, the idea that Facebook’s news feed is filtered by an algorithm is very, very old news. But a majority of everyday Facebook users in a recent study had no idea that Facebook constructs their experience, pushing certain posts into their stream and leaving others out.
