I agree Google has gone into a filter bubble, but the article very speculative and provides no statistics or examples to make a good point.

This is a pop-science article, so I don't have high expectations.

Why do you agree then that Google has gone into a filter bubble?

Based on various other articles I've read. I would not go to an extreme and say "this is a terrible idea," but I would assert it's worthy of serious thought on how to ensure we are not limiting ourselves to the filter we've built.

Nonetheless, my criticism was directed at this article for not providing at least a few examples of the results of a filter bubble.
