At the INFORMS meeting in Charlotte, there was a panel discussion on social media and Operations Research. As an audience member, I raised some concerns about the volume of information and the lack of an editorial filter. Little did I know that such filters do exist, but they are fully automated, causing us to potentially miss things that are interesting.

Like the "information overflow" discussion, the "filter bubble" theme is already a bit dated (~spring 2011)... - and not unchallenged, e.g.
What it essentially comes down to is: never put all your "trust" in a single source - but also establish filters to cope with complexity of diversity. - Actually, nothing new here ...or is it?
[PS: And it's quite obvious, of course, that the old "editorial filter" model doesn't really scale to today's needs.]
+Florian Bahr I agree, topic is a bit dated, but still highly relevant discussion. Besides I like the clean and simple explanation by Eli Pariser.
