#MCB17-Session Mapping Facebook Algorithmic Empire: The Power of the Platforms

Mapping Facebook's Algorithmic EmpireProf. Vladan Joler and Djordje Krivokapic of the SHARE Foundation are visualising the process and data usage behind Facebook’s newsfeed at MCB17. On a map, the audience can watch how Facebook is recording, evaluating and influencing our interactions and activity. How does the platform decide which news to inject into our feeds and timelines? 

After the presentation, Dr. Julia Powles of Cornell Tech and Dr. Ben Wagner (SWP – German Institute for International and Security Affairs) will discuss the power of platforms, the influence of digitisation on our daily lives and the effects of multiple companies and technologies recording and evaluating our online behaviour.
