Description

Our online life is real life. We walk, talk, work, LOL and even love on the Internet – but we don’t always treat it like real life. Host Manoush Zomorodi explores this disconnect with stories from the wilds of the Web and gets to the bottom of online issues that affect us all. Whether it’s privacy breaches, closed platforms, hacking, fake news, or cyberbullying, we the people have the power to change the course of the Internet, keeping it ethical, safe, weird, and wonderful for everyone. IRL is an original podcast from Mozilla, maker of Firefox and always fighting for you.

Great show. No one ever asked if none of these password managers can be hacked though. Is this not a real threat?

It is broken cuz the social media devs allow for anonymity on their sites while they lack stringent censorship or ip bans for bullies. People who bully others are a prob too. It often is inadequate young adults bullying others, who are often kids. That should be illegal and made law as kids have committed suicide from cyber bullying. It's sick how many biased ppl there are out there but we can deter it with regulations on bullying and requirement of sites to do daily censorship of troll.profane. Hate comments. Try are aware and apartently don't care seeing how long it takes to get a hate comment string removed

Absolutely agree definitely leave you Vulnerable and be told you don't know what you are talking about and there is nothing they can do.Then your life is put on hold I think it is disgusting so I'm glad that their are some site's are trying to do something and yes so think something should be done about it.I also like the name he called them and they should not wait.Great episode and very scary and hope that they can do something.

So.... because Americans can't form their own opinions the internet must be censored to save democracy? Not something I was expecting to hear from Mozilla. I'll rephrase: data mining leads to targeted reception of specific ads/opinions/stories/etc. while purposefully avoiding contradictory information of the same type (i.e. ads/opinions/stories/etc.) to reinforce the recipients' previously held beliefs while simultaneously making it less likely they'll be exposed to opposing viewpoints. Therefore, the recipients are unable to make an informed decision because they don't have all the information. This is why the onus is on the recipient to seek out the information. If Twitterbook gives me an ad for Coca Cola but I want a Dr. Pepper, I'll drink a Dr. Pepper. And if so many people decide to drink Coke that it becomes impossible to find Dr. Pepper anymore, then I guess I'll have a glass of water. The choice is still mine regardless of what my screen says.

The Internet is not broken. The Internet lets people become "anonymous". Anonimity shows the true person. Therefore people are broken, not the Internet.
