30 Abr :: ENGLISH LUNCH – Beware online «filter bubbles»

On April 30th, during the English Lunch (every Wednesday from 14:30 to 15:30), we will watch the video: «Beware online -filter bubbles-» with Eli Pariser. We encourage you to watch it before wednesday lunch!

Summary

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.

Some words to practice!

Squirrel / Front yard/ progressive / conservatives / noticing / flirting / gatekeepers.

3 Idioms to learn…
