Information manipulation by "hacking" attention

This article is a couple of years old but it still rings true today. The same platforms that allow us to connect with each other are the same platforms to widen the gap between people of differing opinions. The same internet that gives us access to a wealth of information is the same source of all the "fake news" that people who can't be bothered to use Snopes fall victim to.
