1.35 Tech companies are increasingly dictating what we see on-line 

Why the chronological feed is dying, and tech companies are increasingly dictating what people consume and when

Since we all started using the internet, the information we've got through twitter, facebook, Instagram, blogs and other sites is usually chronological, it comes in a feed and we tend to see the most recent posts at the top.

But that kind of time based sorting is on its way out in favour of the curated feed. The problem is, who is curating it? 

RNZ's head of Digital Glen Scanlon is in the middle of a redesign of RNZ's website amid a rapidly changing digital environment.
