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.
