Learn What the Other Side is Reading on Facebook


Check out this startling tool that shows what’s trending on liberal and conservative Facebook pages.

Offered by the Wall Street Journal, carrying Jon Keegan’s byline, and launched in May 2016, it shows just how intractably divided we are. On the left, you see the “liberal” feed on a variety of topics you can choose from: Trump, the ACA, abortion, immigration, protests, guns, ISIS, and executive orders. The “conservative” feed is on the right.

It’s an eye-opener, and not necessarily a good or uplifting way. Don’t go here on days when you need to believe that everything will work out eventually, and brace yourself before clicking. The feeds are updated hourly.
