Filter Bubble

Do you know what a filter bubble is?

It’s when your view of politics gets filtered through social media algorithms thereby producing a polarizing effect in your life.

You get surrounded with things you like and filter out the things you don’t creating not just a skewed vision of the world you live in but also less tolerance for things that oppose your way of thinking.

I learned this in my Election 2020 class.

But I really LIKE my filter bubble.

I don’t like to read about people making fun of the BLM movement.

I especially dislike when I read misleading or inaccurate articles on Trump and Biden.

I didn’t watch the Presidential Debate precisely because it would interfere with my filter bubble.

And how is that debate being referred to now?

A hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck?!

Precisely why I didn’t watch in the first place.

I was going to learn nothing new about  either candidate that I didn’t already know.

And honestly, the intonation of Trump’s voice really gets on my nerves.

Like nails on a chalkboard.

Personally, I love filter bubbles.

I’m pretty sure in this economy, with the pandemic still raging, I NEED A FILTER BUBBLE.

My anxiety is already so high, believe me, I’m not hiding from reality – I’m just trying to function IN SPITE of it.
