Our social media feeds are an endless scroll of news, however we do not realize that they only show us a fraction of the information. Social media algorithms facilitate echo chambers which are online environments that echo our beliefs and ignore alternative opinions. These gaps in information are dangerous and have the potential to lead to greater political polarization and a less informed society.
Select All is an interactive website that aggregates news and draws attention to echo chambers and the news that they omit. Using data from Twitter, it is a living pulse of the national dialogue as well as a historical reference for news coverage. Users can search for news topics and view coverage on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly view. They can chose to view all of the news or toggle between liberal and conservative echo chambers. Select All is a tool that seeks to present a truer picture of the news landscape and tries to draw attention to the information that news feeds leave out.
