Do you know you're being filtered?
A friend of mine recently pointed me to Eli Pariser's TED talk regarding how Facebook, Google, Yahoo and others are filtering what we see online.
To be honest, the talk struck me as a tad naive in terms of its plea for openness in the online world. As I commented in a Facebook string regarding this talk, Facebook and Google owe us nothing and it's up to us to identify the slant and then expose ourselves to ideals and opinions different than our own.
But within that same Facebook conversation I realized that not everyone realizes they are indeed being filtered. I guess that's something I took for granted as a geek of sorts. So with that I offer up Eli's TED talk, which for those who don't know they are filtered is indeed eye-opening.
