    Filter Bubbles and Targeted Advertising (20)

However, there was a hidden side effect, which Eli Pariser termed "the filter bubble," which is the exclusion of other perspectives from our tech-assisted preferences. Raising many hard questions including data security, political propaganda, and the pervasiveness of digital "junk food," filter bubbles reveal the future challenges of a personalized, automated web. Features such as media literacy questions and terms enhance this collection, encouraging readers to analyze reporting styles and devices.
