Selected quotes from Eli Pariser's "The Filter Bubble."


<ul><li> 1. THE FILTER BUBBLE Democracy requires citizens to see things from one anothers point of view, but instead were more and more enclosed in our own bubbles. Democracy requires a reliance on shared facts; instead were being offered parallel but separate universes. ELI PARISER Just as the factory farming system that produces and delivers our food shapes what we eat, the dynamics of our media shape what information we consume. </li> <li> 2. ELI PARISER THE FILTER BUBBLE ELI PARISER The attention economy is ripping the binding, and the pages that get read are the pages that are frequently the most topical, scandalous, and viral. </li> <li> 3. THE FILTER BUBBLE ELI PARISER Its not just that experts are vulnerable to confirmation biasits that theyre especially vulnerable to it. In the bubble, the proportion of content that validates what you know goes way up. The filter bubble doesnt just reflect your identity. It also illustrates what choices you have. </li> </ul>
