About this item

Search engines have become a key part of our everyday lives. Yet there is growing concern with how algorithms, which run just beneath the surface of our interactions online, are affecting society. This timely new edition of Search Engine Society enlightens readers on the forms of bias that algorithms introduce into our knowledge and social spaces, drawing on recent changes to technology, industries, policies, and research. It provides an introduction to the social place of the search engine and addresses crucial questions such as:

  • How have search engines changed the way we organize our thoughts about the world, and how we work?
  • To what extent do politics shape search, and does search shape politics?

This book is a must-read for those who wish to understand the future of the social internet and how search shapes it.
