The Social Dilemma

1 Name: Anonymous 2020-09-16 00:04
hey /lounge/ have you seen this documentary? it's about how the internet is controlled by moneyed interests who use algorithms to collect immense amounts of user data and use it to create a personalized user experience that they can then use to manipulate how you think and ultimately engage with and behave in our modern society. It talks about how people are being fed lies by algorithms that learn about one's personal beliefs and create a feedback loop of confirmation bias. it talks about addiction to technology and social media and likens these phenomena to substance abuse and drug addiction.

Ah ya, this has been known for a good while now. Social media is 100 pure shit and all a scam to see what you do and say every minute of every day. You have to be stupid to engage in social media.

Nothing new but it's cool that summer children like OP learn about it on Netflix and their first impulse is to discuss it on social media.

Good job, sperg

It's about how the internet is controlled by moneyed interests that have employed algorithms, which collect large quantities of user data, that manipulate how the average person thinks and ultimately behaves in society. It talks about how the personalized experience these algorithms create can develop feedback loops of information, which in turn predisposes users to confirmation bias.

There. You happy, you fucking cunt?

That information they collect about you:
1) Companies like FB, Google, Apple, etc., collect information about you and then claim that information about you is their protected property. This blurs the lines between private and public.
2) Often the information these companies collect about you is sold to third parties who use the information to try and sell you stuff. You cannot know what information about you was given out, nor can you know who that information was given to.
3) This kind of information collection and use by third parties was instrumental in the election of Trump in 2016. Team Trump got personal info on millions of citizens from FB, and team Trump then used that information to identify specific individuals likely to be susceptible to lies and bigotry. Those identified individuals were then targeted for political messages. Trump of course won the 2016 election.
4) The selling of consumer information is so profitable that recently Ford announced they would also collect and sell information collected from sensors installed in Ford vehicles, including microphones to pick up conversations, GPS monitors to collect information about drivers' location, driving frequency, vehicle speed, etc.

The problem is that everyone already knows but nobody fucking cares. Basic bitch Karen doesn’t see anything wrong with the fact that she googles something and 10 minutes later she sees ads for it all over facebook. They typically notice it and comment about “lol creepy” but Facebook is so fucking ingrained in our society that they’ll never stop and do anything about it. Seriously, if you tell someone that you don’t have facebook they think you’re a fucking weirdo. They’re typically right but still.
