The latest craze on Netflix, “The Social Dilemma,” has viewers concerned about the negative effects of social media. The engrossing documentary is a drama hybrid that interviews tech experts, who helped create and develop large social media sites, about the dangers of social media.
Here are some key takeaways:
• The data that is collected from individual users is being used to build in-depth psychological profiles that can help influence and change behaviors.
• Studies have shown that social media is linked to the rising suicide rate.
• Fake news spreads much quicker than factual news, allowing conspiracy theories to consume our society.
