    point taken ….. however, i believe it is not facebook nor google that is keeping us away from other information …… truly, in reality we, the internet users, are the ones making our own settings and choices of what type of information we want to hear, read and see, and facebook and google simply make it easier for us! …. 🙂

    I think we should have more control about what gets filtered out, some kind of setting to control the filter.

    We need to be in control of this filtration … real world isn’t built around what we want to see!

    real world is built around freedom!! We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it everyday when making our own choices.

    Very good video!!! Thanks for posting it.
    We put the filters, but we don’t know if the stuff comes already filtered before our own filters. Since Google or others already send us the filtered information without us knowing it.
