Our Gobo project presents an alternate approach to social media, putting you in control of what posts get shown and what don’t. As we learned more about these algorithms, we wanted to interrogate them a bit more. We wanted to understand how the major social media platforms were shaping what we saw. We’ve already started to learn that there’s more to it than you see. We started with Facebook, and the idea that what you see on your feed is the freshest take on what is happening. We wondered—just how fresh were our feeds? Check out http://howfreshisyourfeed.social to see what we learned.
