Echo chambers are filter bubbles are created while we navigate through the Internet using social media and search engines. We like, subscribe and share information. This information is used to create tailor-made offers for us. When it comes to merchandise, this may be useful. When it comes to people and opinions, it is dangerous: if a provider only suggests friends, groups and information that match me, this confirms of prejudices and one-sided, dogmatic visions.
