Examining ‘The Filter Bubble’

Former MoveOn.org executive director Eli Pariser isn’t so sure that the Internet is breaking down information barriers. In his new book "The Filter Bubble," he writes of a hidden rise of personalization on the web and how it limits the information we access. This information, he suggests, then becomes our own unique web universe, or "filter bubble."

  2. 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.

    Pioneering online organizer Eli Pariser is the author of "The Filter Bubble," about how personalized search might be narrowing our worldview.
