Why Use this Guide

Do you feel disconnected from people with opposing views? Unable to find any common ground on issues? Unsure of what you even disagree about?

  • Break out of filter bubbles
  • Find and evaluate a wide range of perspectives
  • Take control of the information that appears on your feed
