How come I see so many questions about healthcare in the US on the English-speaking Quora? Am I in a filter bubble?

I think there are a number of factors going on together.Presumably answered, follow and upvote your topics related to health and health care, so that’s the first factor haha.

I answer a lot of questions about gardening, and there are a lot of questions in the lines of ‘ what plants are suitable for the South/Midwest/Any other region in the United States? ‘ Just really a lot of questions from Americans.That you are also in other topics. So I think the second factor is that there are many Americans on the English Quora.

Furthermore, I know that a large number of users from the English site come from India.That you see the names of the upvoters and followers, but not really to the questions. There are far fewer questions about, for example, Indian policy or Indian health care. I think, then, that Americans will first of all assume that their question about the US is general (that you often see also in questions about mileage or miles, a bit of it is assumed that the American experience is the standard). For example, I would ask a question about planting as ‘ which plants are suitable for a temperate sea climate? ‘ and then I would think that was brighter for a wide audience.

I also think that the American state of affairs is being followed so much by the rest of the world, that many can talk about it too.There is a bit of a competition between Americans and Europeans on the English Quora about who is better now, so many Europeans are also in the American healthcare debate, so they can compare it with the state of affairs in Europe. Incidentally, Americans do, as I see quite often pass something like ‘ What the British of the failing NHS, would they not rather have the American system? ‘ Well, the Quora algorithm will take that into your feed, thinking ‘ oh this is a European, let me just recommend this. ‘

Or something.So third factor will be a bit the Quora culture and what is much read in your region, and by the people you follow. Some of the grand Quora writers with the most followers are also Americans who write about this, so their answers are often offered.

I don’t know if you’re in a filter bubble, or that Quora just recommends what’s most popular. I get a lot of answers from Matthew Bates on my feed, while I don’t follow him, the content doesn’t find interesting and also often have a very different opinion than him.He is a good writer but I often find his views a little bleh, and I have no idea why Quora recommends it to me.

Well, so I think this all plays along.If there is a filter, then it is one for us content, because I really see it more often than any other region. I also don’t know how to get there. I am therefore very happy that there is also a Dutch Quora, the English is often very interesting, but it is in many cases more recognizable.

No, health care in the US is really a big problem.Every American has experiences with this and would like to lose his story about it.

Health care has also been very commercially established in other Third world countries.If you go to a doctor, you never know if that is a treatment because you need it, or because he can earn a lot of it. About as much as a lawyer who always wants to litigate. Until your money is up, of course.

That could be, I don’t see that back.It is true that Americans speak a lot about healthcare.

I would like to say that even the subjects that are not on the English language will lead to conversations about sex.An example: Someone is asking about educating children and using childish language, someone else is starting to talk about having sex. Is the world really as banal and flat as a pancake or am I crazy. This is one of the reasons I keep on writing in my language.
