Wroclaw Bubbles

Bubble is a widely used popular word nowadays. The word is used in different, but recognizably related meanings.

1. The social circle with mostly like-minded people, often with the same social background, the same level of education and especially the same opinions. The view of other bubbles is limited by the distorted image of the bubbles and influences from outside are disturbed by the continuous confirmation of the equel views in the bubble.

2. Small circle of people who limit themselves as much as possible to mutual contact, in order to reduce the risk of contamination in a pandemic. The Covid bubble is a current example of this.

3. An information bubble is the result of a personalized search, in which a website algorithm tries to selectively determine what information the user would like to see, based on information about that user (such as location, previous click behavior and search history), and whereby users aren’t presented with information that contradicts their own point of view. This isolates users in their own cultural or ideological bubble.

4. A period when stock prices are hugely overvalued relative to true value. An example is the internet bubble of the late 1990s.
5. Bubble (physics), a globule of one substance in another, usually gas in a liquid.

But the most famous bubble is of course the SOAP BUBBLE, commonly referred to as a "BUBBLE"
