Information Control/Filter Bubbles

I recently attended our state technology conference.  One of the sessions talked about Google and filter bubbles.  This was very interesting to me.  As a school library media specialist who teaches and promotes information literacy, now I’m learning that some web companies are “filtering” the information for a searcher based on some criteria.  Here is a video from TEDTalks that explains “filter bubbles” and the harm it may cause.
