Eli Pariser: Beware online "filter bubbles"

"As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there's a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a "filter bubble" and don't get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy."

This is a very interesting presentation for teacher-librarians as we make a case for using a variety of search tools and resources. It's all about stepping outside the filter bubbles that may surround us.
