CHECK YOUR BIASES (5/8)

Consider if your own beliefs could affect your judgement. It is hard but, try to stay objective! The article, ‘Mediated Skewed Diffusion of Issues Information: A Theory’ published by Social Media + Society, makes the assertion that, “people highly invested in particular issues are the most likely to actively seek messages to share with their social media networks; however, their ego-involvement in an issue also makes it difficult for them to accurately assess the quality of those arguments. Therefore, many of the issue messages shared on social media are both polarizing and low quality” (p.1).
