Social media platforms routinely remove terms from their search results and highlight others meant to promote their own interests. Given that billions of us now rely on proprietary platforms to access information, what are the implications of this sort of filtering? How does it affect our perceptions of ourselves and our behavior as employers, as citizens, and as a species?

Dr. Zeynep Tufekci is an assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science and an adjunct professor in the Department of Sociology. She is also a fellow at the Center for Information Technology at Princeton University and a fellow at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society.
