A Nation Of Echo Chambers: How The Internet Closed Off The World
This message, especially today, is very important, which is why I chose it. This was always an issue I that I started to catch onto during the US’ elections, which made this article a no-brainer to me.
First of all, this subject is intensely interesting, as it gives us a glimpse into our own mentalities. It’s facsinating how we seek out those who think similarly, and shun or completely disregard what others think if they have a different opinion from out own. It really makes me want to curb this idea, and search out more and more people who have an opposing ideal to my own.
Another thing I need to mention is I loved how casual, and especially near the end, satirical this article was. The writing styled seemed almost like talking to a friend about a subject they were very opinionated of. Also, the way how the article grew in satire, and just kept going and going until it reached a fever pitch was pretty nice as well. A really well done article.
