Well-made documentary with lots of knowledgeable individuals. Might seem too dramatic initially, but it actually downplays the severity of the problem to not discourage people from doing anything at all.
“Throughout history, every single time something's gotten better, it's because somebody has come along to say, “This is stupid. We can do better.” It's the critics that drive improvement. It's the critics who are the true optimists.” —Jaron Lanier
Of cause for some people, this is old news. But it's the masses that need to change, information is power. What is good and what is bad information the algorithm has no idea about. But hey, give me a upvote, it'll like that.
It's society versus a super-computer with an algorithm that wants to reinforce our basest instincts. We don't have a chance. The Social Dilemma should be required viewing before anyone even uses these platforms.
