Echo Chambers

Well, not many people actually believed that the outcome of the US Presidential elections would turn out quite like it did; surely The Simpson’s hadn’t actually predicted the future, 16 years ago?

It’s become painfully clear over the past few years that my social media sphere is heavily weighted toward the liberal, socialist left. Harking back to the UK General Election of 2010, the Alternative Vote referendum a year later and through Indyref and Brexit my feed was full of views that largely mirrored my own. Pollsters and commentators seem like they may be living in similar bubbles in the major cities and we can’t really trust what calls they make any more.

I clearly need to diversify somewhat but I can barely bring myself to even link to the likes of the Daily Mail, let alone read the thoughts and opinions of their readership.
