Expert opinions are a thing of the past, and we prefer user reviews written by "people like us", whether we select a restaurant or scan a newsfeed. But when the filter bubbles burst, consumers and citizens alike turn back inside to find the truth. Through designs that "empower", the smartest organizations meet them right there. We need to empower and empower our audience to gain their trust, not the other way around, and only through tactical decisions about content and design, empowerment can be initiated.
