I'm sure most people have heard of the filter bubble. It supposedly ensures that we are only shown information and content on the Internet that corresponds to our interests and convictions. The filter bubble is therefore used as an explanation for many social problems: political radicalization, division of society, democracy fatigue. But what if the filter bubble doesn't exist at all? We talk to Dr. Stephan Dreyer from the Leibniz Institute for Media Research │ Hans Bredow Institute (HBI) and have him explain why we will probably have to let the filter bubble burst, unfortunately. We also talk to him about other Internet myths that still persist today.
Do you know of any other Internet myths that urgently need to be clarified? Then send an e-mail with your Internet myth to Dr. Stephan Dreyer.
