It's not very well explained, but it's interesting when I know that a big cake like that would involve a party or large gathering without masks. So the headline and lead paragraph/lede should maybe mention that.

So I was thinking last night and it dawned on me the importance of not having or using news feeds.

By not having a news feed to spoon feed me so called news of the day that is custom tailored to my political leanings by algorithm, I am staying out of echo chambers that keep me too busy reading what is in front of me to go and seek out news in other places and get different points of view that I may not have seen if I had a news feed...

...My conclusion is that having a news feed is limiting and conducive to echo chamber like group think, that prevents the user from having a more rounded and fuller understanding of events of the day.

Am I the only one here who does not use news feeds, at all ?


I do realize that there are occupational based news feeds which do not fall into what i am addressing. I am talking about the broader based things like yahoo, msnbc, cnn and fox or whatever your favorite might be, if you have one.
 
I don't think I've ever used a news feed; I've seen sites that offer them but I guess I never clicked "yes".  I have used sports "update" feeds a few times for things like the NCAA Basketball Tournament or MLB of NFL Playoffs in the past but I generally deleted the apps after the first week of the tourney if I had downloaded any of them at all.
A friend of mine is a journalist here in NC and he goes to the General Assembly in Raleigh most of the time but he also has a news feed from there on his phone, especially for when he can't be there.  The feed isn't "news"from a "reporter" though, it's more like generic notes or timelines of the proceedings - more or less like court stenographers' notes.

 

Thanks for your post Kurtster! I totally agree with you on all counts. I especially like the opening words, "So I was thinking last night" I think that may explain, or be a caused by, the very things that prevent you from being news-fed :)
I feel the same and I'm not on any news feed either. I must admit I'm bewildered by all of this. Who's keeping the gate anyway? The phrase itself is weird when you think about it. Makes me think of a trough, not appetising.
The main problem with those is that at the end of the day, I'm not sure it's not the algorithms that define the political leanings.
The news in itself is sufficiently tricky. I always try to explain this to students. No easy task. "think of all the stuff that's happening in the world on any given day. Now think of what you get to see on the 8, 9 or 10 o'clock news, or facebook or whatever else you're using. Choosing what's newsworthy is already some kind of tweaking. Then again, some of them have absolutely zero problem to write "google image" as the source of the picture they've pasted in a report. But I'm diverging. Back to my original intent, thank you :)

So I was thinking last night and it dawned on me the importance of not having or using news feeds.

By not having a news feed to spoon feed me so called news of the day that is custom tailored to my political leanings by algorithm, I am staying out of echo chambers that keep me too busy reading what is in front of me to go and seek out news in other places and get different points of view that I may not have seen if I had a news feed.

By participating here in the forum, I note that far too often that I post something and within seconds someone comes up with a copy and paste response that is sitting there all pretty wrapped up in a bow because it is sitting in their news feeds and they don't have to go looking for a response.  I, on the other hand go looking for information and run across all kinds of different points of view in that process, and I end up reading them to make sure that it is what I am seeking.  But in doing so, I am exposed to different points of view that helps me to have a broader more informed opinion, because I did not accept what was sitting in front of me and look no further.

I seem to be pretty well informed on all sides because of my listening and looking beyond what is in front of my nose, waiting for me.  I actually have the time to go looking because it is not spent consuming and digesting all that is placed in front of me as stuff that I need to read just to make sure that I don't miss something important.  I tend to believe that these news feeds are designed to keep the user from going beyond, further limiting broader based knowledge just because of how much time they take away just by reading them.

My conclusion is that having a news feed is limiting and conducive to echo chamber like group think, that prevents the user from having a more rounded and fuller understanding of events of the day.

Am I the only one here who does not use news feeds, at all ?

I do realize that there are occupational based news feeds which do not fall into what i am addressing. I am talking about the broader based things like yahoo, msnbc, cnn and fox or whatever your favorite might be, if you have one.
