Social media will always cater to their users, Facebook won’t change and neither will Twitter.

The key is to procure a diverse set to follow. Or maintain a few accounts.

Twitter was a fantastic way for me to branch out and follow many different groups (and there are so many more than just pro-Trump and pro-Hillary.) My Facebook kept me in touch with people from all the cities I’ve lived in.

Material you read will always be biased. It’s up to us to read from a broad range of sources.

Based on what I saw, I predicted Trump would win. I could never tell how many people reflected the views I saw on different platforms. But I could tell that the Trump side had a better grasp of what Clinton supporters thought. Clinton supporters were in a much thicker echo chamber than their counterparts. I assumed that because Trump supporters were more willing to look at what was happening on the other side that they had more claim to predicting the outcome.

It’s important to branch out and learn from all sides of an argument- especially the arguments that you didn’t even know were there.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
