Is Curated Content Creating Tunnel Vision?

We’ve never lived in a reality where we are the exclusive owners and purveyors of information. We have no responsibility to deliver certain information, to exclude bias or to give both sides of the story.

A 2016 study by the Pew Research Center found that 62% of adults get news on social media. If our newsfeeds are our primary news source, should networks be sharing both sides of the story? Unless we engage with diverse content and views, we’re only served the opinions we “like.”

In this session, panelists will explore both sides of the coin – do social networks have a responsibility to deliver “mixed views housing,” or are we to blame for our own tunnel vision?
