Social media networks like Facebook are not putting users in an ideological information bubble, despite fears to the contrary, a new research report said.

像「臉書」這類社群媒體網路,不會讓使用者置於一個意識形態的資訊濾泡中,儘管這與一般人的擔憂相反,一項新的研究報告說。

The study published in the journal Science, based on an analysis of 10 million Facebook users and seven million web links, found many of the shared stories allowed people to get viewpoints different from their own.

這項研究發表於《科學》期刊,研究分析1000萬名臉書使用者和700萬個網站連結,發現許多被分享的文章可以讓人們接觸到迥異於他們自己的觀點。

The findings appeared to minimize concerns that social networks are leading to political polarization by grouping people along ideological lines and not exposing them to opposing views.

新發現似乎可降低這樣的憂慮:社群網站會導致政治的對立,因為它會依人們的意識形態劃分社群,而且不讓他們暴露於反對觀點下。

Facebook has been under special scrutiny because it uses algorithms that aim to deliver relevant stories to each user based on their interests.
