Ever wonder if your Facebook feed is only telling you one side of the story? Well, research has shown that it can do just that.

Social media feeds can morph into echo chambers of your political beliefs, telling you only what like-minded friends and family think, and in doing so, ignoring the news and political material that would challenge them.

A new Google Chrome extension, aptly named PolitEcho, is trying to sift through this biased feedback loop to give us a clear picture of just how ‘red’ or ‘blue’ our feeds really are.
