An important and entertaining short film just released – ‘The Social Dilemma’ – about the effects of social media and its algorithms – on people, the economy, and especially politics…. In particular it explains why and how people have become vulnerable to fake news, conspiracies, tribal politics, etc.
Narrated by the people who held key roles in Google, Facebook etc. it’s like listening to the guys who flew the Enola Gay and unleashed the first nuclear warhead on Japan.
Unfortunately, it’s only on Netflix at present. It should be shown everywhere.
Thanks for the tip off. I’ll try and have a look
