How Do I Burst My Political Filter Bubble?

For the sake of broadening your horizons — and, well, offsetting the downfall of democracy — you should peek outside your partisan social media bubble. That doesn’t mean you have to listen to Alex Jones rant for four hours a day. Just download Escape Your Bubble, a Facebook extension that seeds your feed with stories falling outside your political viewpoint (and marks them as such). There’s also FlipFeed, a Twitter plug-in that, on command, turns your regular feed into that of a random user with an opposing ideological bent. Now you can understand other people without the nuisance of having to talk to them!
