Thanks, Pam,
I know it can be a little freaky. The most important thing is to know you are in a filter bubble. Once you know that, you can claim power over it. I keep hoping one of my computer genius friends will come up with an app to enable us to peak into the filter bubbles of people who have different beliefs, so we can understand their "world."
I believe that if you really 'get' the world someone experiences, you can build bridges.

I think it's also fascinating the way it lines up with the spiritual/manifesting teachings of what you focus on increases. Certainly this is EXACTLY how this whole filter bubble thing works. We train our Google, our Facebook, all of these filters to show us what we interact with (i.e. focus on) so on FB if we always like or comment on, for example, people's pictures of food they are eating, we see more pictures of food. Then we wonder why FB is so "shallow." If we click on upsetting news, we see only more and more catastrophe.

I have a practice of training FB what I like. (funny stuff, inspirational, stuff, beautiful images for example.) I know that the more I interact with these things, the more I'll see. But I don't think for one minute that FB is my be-all end all source for what's happening in the world. I just enjoy funny/inspirational/beautiful things. And pictures of my grand baby and nieces, lol.

Hugs!
