A phenomenon partly fueled by human's tendency for confirmation bias.

Echo chamber is an environment where a person only surrounds themselves with information that aligns or supports their existing belief/opinion, which only further reinforces their beliefs/opinion and becoming a vicious cycle.

It is one that greatly contributes to the polarization of people in social media.

And with the help of algorithms applied by social medias. This phenomenon becomes far more easy to fall into since it brings people to find like-minded communities and feed them the same thing over and over again.

Echo chamber is one of the reasons why 'factions' exist amongst societies. When you are inside an echo chamber, you are only expose to the best side of your beliefs and the worst side of your opposite beliefs. And this only leads to everyone thinking that 'the other side' is dumb and has no logic.

Echo Chamber is a poison that you should escape from. It is one of the major blocks that hinders critical thinking and discourages people from questioning their own beliefs/assumptions.This only leads to stagnation and ultimately, a lack of progress.

Bad examples:
-Climate Change is not real
-earth is flat'

Good examples:
-the belief that environmental issues are the biggest issues we are currently facing and those that don't care is considered ignorant or uncaring.
-strict gun control. Pro-Gun vs Anti-Gun
-abortion issues. Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice
-Echo Chamber in effect-

First example: Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice
"Abortion is the taking of innocent life and goes against the fundamental right to life."
"Denying women access to abortion forces them to carry unwanted pregnancies, which can have serious physical, emotional, and financial consequences."

Second Example: Pro-Tate vs Anti-Tate
-"Andrew Tate is a bully who uses his platform to spread hate speech and promote toxic masculinity." (anti-Tate)
-"Andrew Tate is just telling it like it is. The truth hurts, and that's why people are so triggered by him." (pro-Tate)
-"Andrew Tate is a misogynistic and racist influencer who uses shock tactics and controversy to gain attention and followers." (anti-Tate)
-"Andrew Tate is a confident and outspoken personality who isn't afraid to speak his mind, which is refreshing in today's overly politically correct society." (pro-Tate)
