All this hate and violence is being facilitated by a handful of internet companies that amount to the greatest propaganda machine in history. Facebook, YouTube and Google, Twitter and others – they reach billions of people. The algorithms these platforms depend on deliberately amplify the type of content that keeps users engaged – stories that appeal to our baser instincts and that trigger outrage and fear.

I like to say StumbleUpon provides a personal tour of the Internet. The responses are more targeted to your interests than they would be with a regular search engine. If you choose a topic on our site that you’re interested in, such as art, Web sites related to art appear, as if you’re leafing through an art magazine.
