Looking back on a year which was dominated by Brexit and Trump, my Facebook feed reflected none of the deep divisions and debates which were happening in the wider social sphere. My feed was a liberal, left-wing, consensual arena; a key reason why, on reflection, I was so shocked by the results of the two votes last year. Is my RL social sphere any more diverse?
