Bursting the Bubble: Social Media Demo

Brief Description

This demo presents the user with a social media homepage with posts about particular topics (e.g. Nuclear Energy, GMOs) and asks the user to “like” posts or comments that they agree with. Upon interacting with a post/comment, more posts that match that topic and point of view (e.g. supporting Nuclear Energy) are loaded, in a feedback loop that leaves out other points of view and other topics.
