Data, data stealing, data mining and etc. are words often thrown around while discussing Tech Companies. After all their whole business model is based on this. But to what extent it happens, is hardly ever discussed.
The Social Dilemma shows us how tech companies have capitalised on human psychology and its weakness. This documentary makes us realise the flip side of connecting with people via internet. How social media can and has destroyed the very basics of democracy by undermining it. How we were supposed to live in a world of information, but now we are living in a world of misinformation. How every single action we take on social media can have unnerving consequences. And how there is no way to stop it.
What I really like about this documentary is that the way whole information is presented to us is really clear and precise and easy to understand. And alongside the standard documentary format, there is also a drama going on behind so that the point which is being discussed upon can be shown to audience so they can understand it.
This documentary is really eye opening and can have really positive effects. If even 1 out 10 people, after watching this documentary, delete their social media accounts, the fight against big data will strengthen and maybe a domino effect could take place. Overall, absolutely worth watching.
