Social media is increasing hate, weaponizing the filter bubble, and aiding tyrants. But it doesn't have to. Eli Pariser led during the Bush era, coined the phrase "filter bubble" in the bestselling book of the same name, and now leads Upworthy. In this talk, Eli Pariser shares what he's learned in nearly two decades of organizing and storytelling about how to use stories to help Davids beat Goliaths, bring people together across divides, and make the world better.
