Abstract [en]

Social media has become an inseparable part of society and its design has far reaching consequences beyond the producer's intent. In the design of these two-way communicative media, filters are central part which has consequences for the contexts of the users moving through them. What can a Deleuzian method make visible by crashing it with filter bubbles and social media? What happens to the individuals whose truths are shaped by social media, when these media are on track to take over as the primary information channel? Why are social media designed in a way that tend to exclude variation in perspective. The examination aims at investigating thoughts on how the design creates filter bubbles in favor of social, ideological and principal positions based on how the user has built up her social media accounts. How does the filter bubble relate to the rhizome, what brings them together and what sets them apart? Can design utilize the heterogeneous links of the rhizome while at the same time limiting it? By reviewing what social media produces, I want to investigate its design, and thereby see new ways to develop the platforms of the future.
