Gatekeepers Of The Internet

The Internet allows for massive amounts of data to be posted by anyone with a digital device and travel almost instantly over the web. Although the creation, publication and distribution of digital content is exponentially increasing, a user may be restricted to access only a portion of that information. The entities that control information flow on the internet are known as Gatekeepers.

This infographic is targeted towards adults aged 20+, which is a growing demographic in the online space (particularly on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter). We aim to educate these new users of how information is being disseminated online, how it can skew their perception, and what they can do about it when navigating the web.
