Echo chambers are filter bubbles that form, as we navigate through the internet via social media and search engines. We like, subscribe and share information. This information is used to create tailor made offers for us. Regarding products this may be useful, concerning people and opinions it is dangerous: if a provider only suggests friends, groups and information, that matches me, this leads to a confirmation of prejudices and one sided, dogmatic visions.
