The Long Island Media Task force panel will reveal how algorithms track our online activities and decide what we are exposed to-and what is kept from us-in both ads and news content. The presentation will conclude with a series of recommendations about how participants can regain control over the kinds of information that reaches them through social media, and how to evaluate whether news is real of fake. Registration us underway. This program is cosponsored by the public libraries in the Town of Huntington.
