The Social Dilemma is a docudrama that was released on Netflix. This documentary not only explores the exponential rise of social media in our day and age, but it also exposes the big tech companies that are responsible for the negative effects of social media on our mental and physical wellbeing. Not all of the content is a revelation, some of it we already know – like social media being addictive or companies like Facebook and Google using our data for financial gains. However, the storytelling of this docudrama is woven with a dramatization of a story cut together with interviews from former employees from Google, Facebook, Pinterest, Apple, etc. It’s this storytelling that makes The Social Dilemma an eye-opening watch as to how we are being manipulated at the hand of these big tech firms.
Ironically, let’s go over to Twitter and see what people have to say about this documentary:
I love how people are watching The Social Dilemma and then coming back to social media to discuss the side effects of social media.

Everyone needs to watch the social dilemma on Netflix ASAP, then tell 5 friends to watch it. I don’t think I’m over reacting when i say it might be one of the most important things you will ever watch.
Hopefully the algorithm lets you see this. #socialdilemma

The Social Dilemma just proved that we ARE living in a black mirror episode in case we had any doubts or felt like joking about it for the millionth time this year.

The Social Dillema is probably the best doc I’ve watched this year, alongside Last Dance.
