    In December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for each user. Instead of giving you the most broadly popular result, Google now tries to predict what you are most likely to click on. According to MoveOn.org board president Eli Pariser, Google's change in policy is symptomatic of the most significant shift to take place on the Web in recent years: the rise of personalization.

    "now is aged information, but still relavent"

    Would you listen to The Filter Bubble again? Why?

    i want to be able to get onto the internet and be recognized and then get off and go incognito when i want. can i do this? definitely worth a listen to understand how personalization of the internet and your favorite sites is likely to prevent you from seeing other happenings. who's counting your clicks and likes and what they're doing with them is something we've all known for a while. The Filter Bubble details how it's done by big companies like google, amazon, and facebook and sounds the alert for all to heed if you value your privacy.
