The Social Dilemma

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.

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.
