The filter bubble : what the Internet is hiding from you by Eli Pariser( Book )

32 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 1,879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for each user. Instead of giving you the most broadly popular result, Google now tries to predict what you are most likely to click on. According to MoveOn.org board president Eli Pariser, Google's change in policy is symptomatic of the most significant shift to take place on the Web in recent years-the rise of personalization. In this groundbreaking investigation of the new hidden Web, Pariser uncovers how this growing trend threatens to control how we consume and share information as a society-and reveals what we can do about it. Personalized filters are sweeping the Web, creating individual universes of information for each of us. Facebook prioritizes the links it believes will appeal to you so that if you are a liberal, you can expect to see only progressive links. Behind the scenes a burgeoning industry of data companies is tracking your personal information to sell to advertisers, from your political leanings to the color you painted your living room to the hiking boots you just browsed on Zappos. In a personalized world, we will increasingly be typed and fed only news that is pleasant, familiar, and confirms our beliefs-and because these filters are invisible, we won't know what is being hidden from us. Our past interests will determine what we are exposed to in the future, leaving less room for the unexpected encounters that spark creativity, innovation, and the democratic exchange of ideas. While we all worry that the Internet is eroding privacy or shrinking our attention spans, Pariser uncovers a more pernicious and far- reaching trend on the Internet and shows how we can- and must-change course. With vivid detail and remarkable scope, The Filter Bubble reveals how personalization undermines the Internet's original purpose as an open platform for the spread of ideas and could leave us all in an isolated, echoing world

The filter bubble : how the new personalized web is changing what we read and how we think by Eli Pariser( Book )

28 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With little notice or fanfare, our online experience is changing as the web sites we visit are increasingly tailoring themselves to us. The race to collect as much personal data as possible is now the defining battle for today's Internet giants like Google, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft. As a result, we will all increasingly each live in our own unique information universe, what MoveOn.org board president Eli Pariser calls the 'filter bubble.' In this account, Pariser lays bare the personalization that is invisibly taking place on every major web site and reveals how it will limit what we are exposed to in the future, leaving less room for creativity, innovation, and the democratic exchange of ideas
The filter bubble : [what the Internet is hiding from you] by Eli Pariser( Recording )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The hidden rise of personalization on the Internet is controlling--and limiting--the information we consume. In 2009, Google began customizing its search results. Instead of giving you the most broadly popular result, Google now tries to predict what you are most likely to click on. According to MoveOn.org board president Eli Pariser, this change is symptomatic of the most significant shift to take place on the Web in recent years--the rise of personalization. Though the phenomenon has gone largely undetected until now, personalized filters are sweeping the Web, creating individual universes of information for each of us. Data companies track your personal information to sell to advertisers, from your political leanings to the hiking boots you just browsed on Zappos. In a personalized world, we will increasingly be typed and fed only news that is pleasant, familiar, and confirms our beliefs--and because these filters are invisible, we won't know what is being hidden from us. Our past interests will determine what we are exposed to in the future, leaving less room for the unexpected encounters that spark creativity, innovation, and the democratic exchange of ideas.--From publisher description

In late 2009, Google began customising search results for each user. Welcome to the world of internet personalisation. Say hello to advertising bombardments and angry, isolated opinions.

Eli Pariser : beware online "filter bubbles."( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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"--TED website

Eli Pariser is a pioneer in online politics. Shortly after 9/11, he created a website calling for a non-military approach to fighting terrorism. Within weeks, over half a million people from 192 countries signed on. His website merged with MoveOn.org and Pariser -- then twenty years old -- joined the group to direct its foreign policy campaigns. He is currently board president of MoveOn.org. In The Filter Bubble, Pariser addresses the political and social effects of an increasingly personalized internet experience, in which the information we consume is now controlled -- and limited -- by customized filters
