In episode 142 for October 12th 2020: My conversation about the pros and cons of the Netflix documentary “The Social Dilemma” with frequent guest, Kevin Johnson.
The Social Dilemma is a popular documentary (dramamentary?) on Netflix about how social media is causing unintended harm to people and society. Several engineers and leaders that worked at Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google, and others are interviewed and give their take on the dangers and current state of social media in modern civilization. It’s an interesting and also controversial film that is worth watching so you can form your own opinion.
Even if you disagree about the approach this film takes, there are several good things I got out of it including turning of social app notifications on your phone to help limit your usage of social media.
