On “Psychology Behind the Headlines”, hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest therapist Ryan Heapy discuss a new study exploring how social media algorithms might shape our beliefs and interests.

Social media algorithms often show us content that agrees with what we already believe, which strengthens those beliefs but limits our exposure to fresh ideas.

The Importance of Critical Thinking

It’s important to actively question information we see on social media and to seek out different viewpoints for a well-rounded understanding.

A Call for Awareness

Social media algorithms don’t prioritize our growth; being aware of their influence allows us to make conscious choices about the information we consume.
