In General Discussion
Whether a "concept" is reasonable or not depends not on the degree of word of mouth. Only by analyzing and dismantling it with a rational spirit can we approach its true essence. As Marshall McLuhan said, media technology is the basic driving force for social development, and the emergence of each new medium creates a new way for fax number database humans to perceive and understand the world. Entering the era of algorithms, algorithms as technologies have reconstructed the operating rules and operating modes of all fields. For the content industry, the content distribution mechanism based on algorithm recommendation can not only meet the personalized information needs of different audiences. But also greatly save the time cost of users to obtain content, enabling them to obtain the required information most efficiently. But people didn’t dwell on this rosy vision for too long, and the wariness of new technologies has led to constant fax number database questioning of algorithmic distribution. Because under the algorithmic recommendation system, the algorithm recommends personalized content that is highly matched to the user based on the user's social relations and information preferences, which may cause certain problems. As early as the era of WEB 1.0, the partial eclipse of information caused by the private customization of information has caused many scholars and fax number database critics to worry. They believe that the prevalence of personalized information will lead people to only care about what they are interested in, thereby eroding the consensus foundation of society and jeopardizing the development of democratic societies. The concept of "Information Cocoons" emerged at this time to describe the risks posed by an information eclipse. After a long time of use, this concept seems to have become a theorem.
