Fox & Friends Filter Bubble Introduction to DuckDuckGo
"Gabe says if you use DuckDuckGo for a week, you’ll be converted. So I asked OTM producers Alex Goldman, Jamie York, Sarah Abdurrahman and PJ Vogt to join me in using DuckDuckGo, and only DuckDuckGo, for a week." "Companies like DuckDuckGo have sprung in the last couple years to cater to the growing number of data dodgers. "There’s pent up demand for companies that do not track you," says DuckDuckGo CEO Gabriel Weinberg." "Five years ago, founder and CEO Gabriel Weinberg just wanted to create a better search engine. So he launched DuckDuckGo and as the site picked up steam Weinberg started investigating his competition's privacy practices."
"The month before Snowden’s revelations, DuckDuckGo saw 54.4 million requests. The month after, it saw 105.6 million. Incredible." " offers (in my experience) search results that are just as good as Google's, and often less full of spam. I've personally used it as my principal search engine for more than a year, initially as an experiment and then simply because it was effective." "Weinberg’s non-ambitious goals make him a particularly odd and dangerous competitor online. He can do almost everything that Google or Bing can’t because it could damage their business models, and if users figure out that they like the DuckDuckGo way better, Weinberg could damage the big boys without even really trying."
"The conclusion from our Google — DuckDuckGo SERP comparison for several query types is that DDG is clearly innovating in search ‘presentation’ — an area that has arguably decayed over the years as the large search engines rush to cram ever more (images, video, local, advertising, social...) into the search results." "Another shrouding tactic is to use the search engine DuckDuckGo, which distinguishes itself with a “We do not track or bubble you!” policy." "Some of the largest companies on the Web have attempted to compete with Google and failed. DuckDuckGo...has come up with one of the most appealing Google alternatives to date."
