In addition to the fact that Netflix is filled with films and series, documentaries occasionally come along. This is also the case with The Social Dillema. In this production, the makers mix drama with documentary, in which the dangers of social media are examined.
What is it about?
As stated in the intro, this documentary is mostly about social media and its impact. In documentary you learn in a drama-like way what happens to your private data and where they all lie around on the internet. Retired employees of gigantic tech companies have their say and explain in detail how those companies use your data to their advantage. Think of Youtube, Facebook and Google.

For years, the former employees worked for these companies in Silicon Valley and they kept an eye on us. Yes, us, the social media users worldwide. They explain how they had only one goal there: to influence our behavior. You can also freely translate that into ‘making us addicted’ to their products and services. Then, through our addiction, they can earn money with advertisements. At first this may seem quite familiar to all of us, but it is more profound and dangerous than you think. Social media created polarization, depression, fake news, conspiracy theories and manipulated elections.
Atmosphere and theme
The Social Dilemma is sometimes reminiscent of the Netflix series Black Mirror. In it, the dangers of technological developments are uniquely explained in each episode. That is how The Social Dilemma tries to do that, but through a mix of documentary and drama. It’s a documentary that is entertaining and keeps you in suspense, even though you know nothing scary is going to happen.

Still, there is something terrifying about that whole social media story. It concerns all of us. Anyone who has an Instagram or Facebook account exposes themselves to it without awareness. The Social Dilemma wants to teach us at the end of the day: think a second time with what you post and do on social media.
