#GetSocial: The Social Dilemma

Unofficial conversation on new Netflix documentary


Discussion prompts to dive deeper into the dilemmas featured in the film and suggested pathways to engage different audiences in action. General #GetSocial on new documentary on Netflix: The Social Dilemma.

/the mental health dilemma_

Addiction, anxiety and depression. Platforms are designed to reward distraction and keep us hooked – at the expense of our wellbeing – to fuel their business.

/the democracy dilemma_

Political polarization and divisiveness. Content that promotes outrage, deception, and conspiracy is promoted as a way to drive more engagement. Stronger ideological rifts make cooperation and compromise increasingly difficult and ultimately sabotage our democracy.

/the discrimination dilemma_

Algorithmic bias and the amplification of hate. Algorithms are not equipped to detect hate speech and the data harnessed by our online activity is used by institutions in ways that can harm and discriminate against marginalized communities.
