About This Product

The Social Dilemma" is a 2020 docudrama movie directed by Jeff Orlowski and written by Orlowski and Davis Coombe. The movie explores the negative impact of social media on society, particularly on mental health, democracy, and privacy. The movie combines documentary footage with fictionalized scenes to illustrate the inner workings of social media companies and the algorithms they use to manipulate user behavior. It features interviews with former executives and engineers from major tech companies, including Facebook, Google, and Twitter, who discuss the ways in which social media platforms are designed to keep users engaged and addicted. The movie argues that the profit-driven business models of social media companies prioritize the maximization of engagement and user attention over ethical considerations, such as privacy and mental health. It also raises concerns about the impact of social media on democracy and political polarization, as well as the role of social media in spreading misinformation and conspiracy theories.
