What you'll learn

  • Understand how to determine which narratives are favored by social media recommendation engines


An increasing number of ex-Google and ex-Facebook employees state that social media is starting to control us rather than the other way around. How can we determine if social media is a pure reflection of people’s interests or if it pushes us toward specific narratives? Guillaume Chaslot explores methodologies to find out which narratives are favored by social media recommendation engines.
