The Social Dilemma

Watched this new documentary by Netflix today.

They have brought the creators of social media together in a room to talk about what’s the problem.

This one line sums it up really well.

YouTube’s former engineer who worked on recommendations said – “The algorithm is actually trying to find a few rabbit holes that are very powerful and then trying to find which rabbit hole is closest to your interest.”

What’s the solution?

I don’t think deleting social media is a solution.

If you use it right, it’s a blessing.

Well, turn of all push notifications – unless its important.

Set routines – don’t pick up phone for the first one hour of the day.

And few others. Watch this documentary.

I beleive it’s an important conversation to have.
