follr: Digital Storytelling – Changing People, Perceptions and Lives - 11/16/15 11:09 PM
In today's society we have the tools to be connected anywhere at any time. The scene is repeated almost every day. People will stand in line with their cell phones to make a call to someone just a few feet away.

When you search online do you find what you want? I'm guessing the answer is 'yes' but the fact is you don't. Let me share a little known secret that might change your answer;  you get to see what Google and Facebook (and increasingly many other companies) think you want to find.
What does that mean? It means that if I search for your name online I see different information than you do, even if we do exactly the same search. Companies filter what you see and that can result in a very biased view of the world. That's a scary consideration especially … (0 comments)
