This excerpt of the full-length panel discussion which explores the question of how socio-political discourses and democratic participation can shape themselves when more and more people – intensified by the consumption of so-called ‘social media’ – remain in their bubbles on their islands and drift apart instead of moving towards each other.

And: Are these bubbles purely technological or do the users themselves contribute to landing in their own echo chambers instead of openly dealing with people with different backgrounds and divergent opinions?
