Influencing with algorithms: Amazon, YouTube, Google and Facebook oh my….

Although I confess to knowing of the existence of algorithms and even seeing their impact on my net use, I’ve never really paid attention to it. My bad. So I am going to specifically play with  4 tools I use often, amazon, facebook, google, youtube to see what the impact is on each other, or how joined up my web use it.

I will look at the impact of searching on google and see if this permeates through to the other tools and then systematically do the same for each.

Things to consider – I have an enormous digital footprint, therefore for the purpose of this experiment I will be specifically trying to influence my digital footprint using items I would not normally search for.
