First October 2020 Friday Five
1. The Social Dilemma: this new Netflix documentary should be required viewing for every American. It features many people involved in the early days of social media who now think the technology is destroying the fabric of our society. They discuss how big tech companies like Facebook and Google are monetizing human beings, and how disinformation has proliferated on social media, polarizing and destabilizing us. And more. Please take the time to watch this film. I’m a little ashamed to say I haven’t even deleted FB after watching it, though I removed some apps from my phone and put time limits on others. It’s a start.
