Digital Culture Module- Algorithms

While working on this culture module, I hope to garner a better understanding of algorithms and how they function. In the web literacy module, I learned about how algorithms can unintentionally marginalize certain minority groups. In this module I hope to learn about the basics of them and how they are created. I think it is important to have a good understanding of algorithms so you can be more web literate and aware on the internet. Algorithms play such key role in social media and search engines that we use everyday, so it’s imperative that we know how they function. Otherwise we would be oblivious to how they work and what kind of information they can find out about us based on what we do on the web.
