The Social Dilemma | Official Trailer | Netflix

We tweet, we like, and we share- but what are the consequences of our growing dependence on social media? As digital platforms increasingly become a lifeline to stay connected, Silicon Valley insiders reveal how social media is reprogramming civilization by exposing what’s hiding on the other side of your screen.
The world has long recognized the positive applications of social media, from its role in empowering protesters to speak out against oppression during the Arab Spring uprisings almost a decade ago, to serving an instrumental role in fighting for equity and justice today. And in 2020, during an astonishing global pandemic, social media has become our lifeline to stay in touch with loved ones, as well as proving to be an asset for mobilizing civil rights protests. However, the system that connects us also invisibly controls us. The collective lack of understanding about how these platforms actually operate has led to hidden and often harmful consequences to society-consequences that are becoming more and more evident over time, and consequences that, the subjects in The Social Dilemma suggest, are an existential threat to humanity.
The Social Dilemma is a powerful exploration of the disproportionate impact that a relatively small number of engineers in Silicon Valley have over the way we think, act, and live our lives. The film deftly tackles an underlying cause of our viral conspiracy theories, teenage mental health issues, rampant misinformation and political polarization, and makes these issues visceral, understandable, and urgent. Through a unique combination of documentary investigation and entertaining narrative drama, award-winning filmmakers Jeff Orlowski (Chasing Ice, Chasing Coral) and Larissa Rhodes (Chasing Coral) have once again exposed the invisible in a manner that is both enlightening and harrowing as they disrupt the disrupters by unveiling the hidden machinations behind everyone’s favorite social media and search platforms.
The film features compelling interviews with high-profile tech whistleblowers and innovation leaders including Tristan Harris of the Center for Humane Technology; the co-inventor of the Facebook “Like” button, Justin Rosenstein; Tim Kendall, former President of Pinterest and former Director of Monetization at Facebook; Cathy O’Neil, author of Weapons of Math Destruction; Rashida Richardson, Director of Policy at the AI Now Institute, and many others. Demonstrating how social media affects consumers on a personal level, these fascinating insider insights are seamlessly woven into a captivating narrative, including Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men), that illuminates the very real consequences these seemingly innocent technologies can have on our everyday lives.

    I thought this doc was great in the first half. When they started to mention Pizzagate, flat earth and other “conspiracies”, it lost me. They were essentially saying that all of the online “conspiratorial fake news” is eroding democracy. Clearly a documentary made to further undermine those questioning the official mainstream news.

Life is so much better without that crap and I don't live in fantasy anymore or always comparing my life to other ppl's lives. I remember some friends who look at me crazy when I decided to not longer being on social media, now some of them are following my path. The only social media I use are whatsapp for call and texts purposes, reddit for life valuable hacks coming from other ppl from different cultures, and ROfilm carefully.

My mom replies again, "It's a documentary about social media." I reply again, "On Netflix, I'm guessing?" She replies once again," Yes that's right sweetie." I say, "Can I see it?"

After the updates samsung forces you to install, I get a few hours. Both samsung and apple were found guilty of purposely slowing/reducing battery life with updates. (My phone has a brand new battery, its the updates that cause the problem) In hopes that ill buy their newer phone. Not gunna happen lol

    Exactly one year ago I deactivated my Instagram & other social media accounts. From November till July i only had Facebook messenger for chat & ROfilm , that’s was it . Even during those hard times in March and April when i couldn’t leave the house , i was trying to be as far from my phone as possible. My daily screen time was 2-3 hours. Well everything has changed since I downloaded Instagram again , then i decided to reactivate my Tik-Tok and yeah , 9 months of being happy and finally overcoming my phone addiction was gone . My daily screen time is 10+ hours and i am trying to improve it . But it’s too hard . Being off social media helped me to grow so much and be the person i am today . I am not planning to delete ROfilm but i need to say goodbye to other apps .

    A documentary what many of us already knew about. It's good now that it's coming to the forefront but, at the same time, responsibility falls on the parents. They need to not give a device to their kids and say "Go over there now" and let them be on it for hours so they can have peace. I get it and understand it, but it's either some peace for a better future or peace and this type of future.
