Several studies confirmed that social networks have dramatically reduced the cost of producing, distributing and discovering new information and articles. Some scientists argue that technological change increases the ability to know the diversity of the world, while others warn of an increase in ideological distances between individuals. Polarization and the increase in ideological distance are closely related to the so-called filter bubbles, which are created on the basis of an algorithm, but considerable attention is paid to social bubbles in general, which arise on the basis of personal motivations of individual members of the online environment.
Bratislava Policy Institute invites you to the first presentation of a series of public events that focus on social bubbles in the online space in the V4 countries. The results, data and conclusions are based on a project of the same name supported by the Visegrad Fund called BIS: Bubbles in Visegrad Societies. The first of a series of presentations will focus on the results of focus groups, implemented in the V4 countries, focused on Facebook users.
