"Instead of broadening their spheres of association, people gravitate towards interactions with ideologically aligned content and similarly minded individuals. Portions of a social network can thus turn into ‘filter bubbles’4, in which individuals see only an algorithmically curated subset of the larger conversation. Filter bubbles reinforce political views, or even make them more extreme, and drive political polarization. Stewart and colleagues now describe a related, but distinct, way in which social-network structure can affect voting behaviour."
