Filter bubble has considered as a serious risk for democracy and freedom of information on the internet and social media. This phenomenon can restrict users' access to information sources outside their comfort zone and increase the risk of polarisation of opinions on different topics. This in-progress paper explains our plan for conducting a prescriptive research aiming at decreasing the chance of filter bubbles formation on social networks. The paper explains a gap in the literature which is a prescriptive work considering both human and technology perspectives. To focus on this research gap, a design perspective has been selected covering two different bodies of theory as kernel theories. The paper explains the relevance of these theories, some of the primarily formed requirements derived from them and the future steps in this research. The explained future steps includes various phases of developing an Information Systems Design Theory and our strategy to evaluate the effectiveness of the developed theory.
