Do we really have a social dilemma?
Watched “The Social Dilemma” last night. Are we just being manipulated by “The Social Dilemma” movie or is there real threat to the fabric of our global society? Given how they present the problem, leads me to believe the movie itself is set out manipulate. Not sure exactly how to feel about it. Do I take my kids tablets away? Do I take my own as well? How much regulation is needed and who should really govern that regulation? Is it government that should regulate? However, are governments ultimately controlled by corporations donating insane amounts of money to political group? Seems we are down a path that has no return. Where is the incentive to make changes?
Fast Company’s KC Ifeanyi met with filmmaker Jeff Orlowski to take a deep look at how the digital giants are shaping human behavior and politics. The social dilemma, which includes ground-breaking interviews with those who worked for Facebook, Pinterest, and other giants in the early days of the social media boom. It’s an eye – a look at the way social media has been designed to create addiction and manipulate behavior, told by the very people who oversee the system in places like Facebook, Google and Twitter. This is the first in a series of interviews from the filmmaker’s new book, “The Social Dilemmas: The Real Story of Social Media,” which provides a behind-the-scenes look at what they tell us about the way social media has been designed to create addiction and manipulate behavior.
With sharp interviews with tech consultants, the documentary ranges from the question of how social media has impacted on life in suburban households to the question of how it affects young people’s lives in the US and around the world. The social dilemma “offers young people a deeper insight into the specific system, as the experts explain.
The documentary spreads a dramatic fictional narrative of a suburban family, and also spreads the story of an evil algorithm triplet, played by “Mad Men” actor Vincent Kartheiser, who lures them to social media and keeps them captive in the documentary. The documentary aired a dramatized, dramatic, fictional tale of suburban families in which the evil algorithms play out on social media.
By contrast, “The Social Dilemma” does not offer much evidence in its narrative for the existence of algorithms. While it does not seem to be invested in the question of whether life without the Internet is conceivable, there is no evidence that it already knows the answer to what it was not.
I encourage you to share “The Social Dilemma” on social media when you have seen it most, and I encourage you to share it with those who need to see it most. I encourage and encourage myself by sharing it as one needs it to see it, essentially as it is most seen by those who know it. I am also encouraged by the fact that I share it as one needs it to see it.
If you believe that human nature is reflected in social media or is being developed in a completely new way, then check out “The Social Dilemma.”
The film delves into the algorithms that try to maximize advertising revenue that make us addicted to our screens. The irony is that this documentary is about a platform that relies heavily on machine learning to optimize the user experience.
If there is one flaw in the social dilemma, it is that it does not explicitly acknowledge that algorithms change the way we think, and that social media platforms do not predict or determine our behavior. Essentially, it tells us that we need to use social media technology with caution. The social dilemmas we have been watching # for years and hearing about, but they tell us first and foremost that it is worth using the know-how – such as social media as a warning. If there are flaws in Social Dilema, it is that they do not explicitly acknowledge that the algorithm changes our way of thinking and does not predict or determine our behavior, so we should use these warnings.
The social dilemma is not a warning that we must live in fear when it comes to surveillance and capitalism, but rather it impairs our ability to use social networks creatively and critically, sometimes to the point of condescension. Not only does the film cling to the myth of the impact social media has had on our social interactions, it clearly explains the causes of capitalism, and it could well make us all the more angry about it.
The social dilemma patiently and carefully decipher the enigmatic algorithms that determine our lives. Despite the vastness of the subject, it is comprehensive and nuanced, offering a fascinating look at the human nature of social media and its impact on our daily lives and relationships.
Structurally, the social dilemma is an attempt to expand the social media story of the late 1980s and early 1990s by switching between dramatized and fictional subplots involving the Internet – pampered suburban families and the AI bots manipulating their decisions. With sharp interviews with tech experts, it provides a profound insight into the impact of social media on the lives of suburban families, and traces their impact over the lifetime of a suburban household. Along with astute interviews with technology consultants, this documentary explores a range of ideas about how social media affects the lifespan of suburbs and households, and takes them through a range of different scenarios.
The film cleverly dramatizes the dark side of social media as a fictional network, literally run by people like Vincent Kartheiser of Mad Men, who plays a key role in creating the social network and its impact on the lives of suburban families.
