Dancing to your own algorithm

It sometimes feels like we live in an on line perpetual paradox. The more we try to open up and evolve the more we become categorized.
Most of us go on line to get info, to learn, to open our minds, and we usually do this in the same places or social networks to be exact. Now, everywhere we go is usually set into an algorithm that studies our on line behavior, where we are, what we like and what we tend to share or post. So the more we're on line in those places the more this algorithm learns how to "accommodate" us and decides what we really "want to see".
The thing is, when this algorithm floats the info we "want" by starting to show us posts or info we were previously interested in, chances are we will probably wan't get the stuff that could actually open our minds.
