Social media is fine, there’s lots of positive things that come from it and people help others feel better. But, every good thing has a bad one. The reason I no longer have instagram on my phone, I got angry a lot at these people who are just dicks so they can laugh when people get mad. It was controlling my life to the point where I cried at a fucking reply of one of these people. That’s when I knew it was too much and went to delete it. I rarely go on Instagram or twitter, I go on Twitter like twice a year, and Instagram more so being like 3 times every two months. There are bad things that come from these apps so I think I get what they’re going for with this documentary. I understand the idea and the concepts, they just failed to explain what’s good that comes form these apps as you said.

social media has pros and cons. it's easy to access all the information you want, stay in touch with friends, etc. we all know, because most of us tend to spend a lot of time on it. The internet has come and dominated life to the point where it feels like there is no return (know I sound extreme). If you think about it, many to most of us grew up visiting friends, playing outside, doing lots of sport, building treehouses, etc... etc... etc. Without me even noticing, my life has started to consist mostly or even purely just interacting with media and entertaining myself with technology. Look, social media is cool and all, but I just feel like we should bring more balance into our lives. for example, you can practice discipline, by saying that you will only spend a certain amount of time online. One thing I have realised is that, media does not do anything for me, really. Sometimes you'll find yourself constantly checking Instagram, but it's purely out of habit. there are no DM's, or new notifications or anything, you just pop through to distract yourself. Social media has led to a real disconnect in society, although more factors can be attributed to this. Perhaps people are not spending time with people in person for other reasons as well. Social media (among other distractions) can really take time out of your life that you can spend on things that make you happy. If social media was used less or didn't exist in your life, what would you do in that time? there are positive and negative habits that can be substituted for the time you would've spent on social media. some would exercise and spend time outside with friends and family, while others would drink, smoke, and so on (not saying that those things are bad, just saying that in excess it can be very damaging). I have found that in my university years I felt very stuck in my life. I would reminisce about high school and all the happy times I had back then... then it hit me, the difference was that I actually went out and did things in high school. I would go on trips, play sports, hang with friends, and so on. In University, when I had more control over my day and how I spent it, I will admit that I picked up bad habits. Days wasted away doing things that aren't getting me anywhere in life. After noticing these things, I definitely want to use social media less, as well as other vices that are sucking my time away like leeches. I am starting to replace my time with exercise, and so on. It is just all a weird, figuring out process. The important thing is to do stuff, keep your days interesting... if you do the same thing everyday, of course your life is going to be boring. These vices and bad habits keep you at home, wasting your days away, while you ask yourself what you're even doing with your life. It is important to be intrinsic, know your goals, dreams, purpose, desires, and needs. Work at the life you want, and learn something new... this keeps life fresh and interesting.

Ok y’all in the comments hear me out, these guys think that social media CAN BE GOOD. But there’s so much about it that needs to be fixed. And they didn’t add teenagers in the documentary because they are interviewing people who WORKED AT TECH COMPANIES. They didn’t just get random people who work at McDonalds. Teenagers aren’t gonna know anything about this stuff. This is not about OPINION. It’s about FACTS. And now I am mentally prepared for everyone attacking me in the replies.

So, I think The Social Dilemma is a really great documentary that warns us about what may happen if we get obsessed with social media to the point of not being able to live without it, and we definitely have reached that point already. While this documentary does have a very “dooms day” vibe to it, it provides a lot of great point and explains how social media has kind of ruined our society and gen z and a lot of things like that. Some people can choose not to except it, but the whole premise is not “we must delete all social media”, which is wise but very very difficult in our day and age, it’s more of “we need to be careful how much time we are spending on social media”. I understand that’s like a huge cliché and people have been saying that forever and it “doesn’t really change you that much” or whatever, but they actually touch on that in the documentary. The whole thing is very interesting and just warns you. Don’t assume you know everything about this subject after watching a YouTube video, watch the documentary, decide how you feel. This is only one view of it from one person, whose view may not be the same as yours.

You totally missed the point. In beginning they acknowledge all the good things internet has done. BUT, despite all of that, what is ruining our experience is the business model. They say what we already know for YEARS but choose to avert our eyes: social medial algorithms are ruining our perception of the world. We isolate ourselves in bubbles, choosing to see just what pleases us. THIS creates polarization. We crave for human interation, but only if they agree with us, like the same shows, listen to the same music. Social media IS controlling us. I remember 2010, mere a decade ago, when having a smartphone wasn't a necessity to keep in touch. Now it is even if you don't want it. As we say here in Brazil, things are not "8 or 80", it's not a "accept or ban all social media" situation. We just have to create a tool that don't exploit our human weaknesses or our constant need for attention just so they can make money off us. Oh, and delete facebook. That shit is worse than crack.

This video misses the major purpose of the documentary. Its called the Social Dilemma. Not the Internet Dilemma. This is not a documentary about how the internet has ruined the world or holds back the world from communication. This a documentary that cautions all users of the Internet to be cautious of how they use it and how they form their opinions based on what they find online because the online world tends to be shouting one mainstream view based on what the algorithm believes you want to see. The interviewees chosen are chosen to explain the way these different medias were built in order to provide a perspective from a place of authority or education. These individuals are the best informed on how the online process works, and you are capable of looking to yourself for the personal effect that online culture has. Essentially, this documentary was meant to provide a perspective beyond our own which is only built from our personal experiences on social media. It is not a documentary meant to say "Hello here is a solution to the problem of addictive algorithms online" but rather say "Hello here is an issue of the inethical way these algorithms were created". There are certainly issues within the documentary and an argument could be made for how one-sided it was overall, but your video mislabels the purpose of the documentary and ends up arguing against multiple strawmen.

Someone suggested I see "The Social Dilemma"...but I m glad I saw this before that too...cos it's important to understand both sides of opinions... Of course Too much of anything is bad Of course a thing that starts beautifully ends horribly sometimes...but we always have the choice, it's the freedom of making those choices ourselves that makes us feel really independent...so of course we know all that is wrong with social media..but also we need ot know that it did help us in many ways too, n it all comes down to how we chose to use all of it, as is with every other luxury in this world.

What’s so funny about that movie is they act like we didn’t know all that already. It was shown to my health class, and I was pretty annoyed at first, but the last straw for me was when they used teenage girl su!cide and self h@rm from 2013 to push their agenda, without proving anything, even that the statistics were real, and lacking a trigger warning even though their own statistics showed that it was very likely that one or more ppl in that room would be triggered. It just left a bad taste in my mouth.

5:45 i agree because i found some of my happiness from social media because I found bts which led me to find other groups, because of those people I found more about of other things i never knew about myself. Thanks to lgbt+ community I found more about how people hate the fact love is love and how i can view it. I found there was some racist people in my life and homophobic as well but they could have changed since this all happened when we were kids at the time. I found out so much about the world the good and bad simply because of the internet. I may have been worst if I didn’t find all this out but now i view things from a new point of view and found out it is way better to view things from a netural point rather than taking sides right away if I don’t have the concrete evidence yet

Any form of technology is simply a tool. Yes, social media can cause narrow-minded people to come together in the thousands to cause chaos, but it has also created communities that collaborate and share their research findings or reach out to those who need it. It's just how you use it.

Explaining how internet is destroying to world and it needs to be stopped. And what hit me hard was when he said that eventually, internet needs to shut down, but I am 97% sure that is never going to happen. Internet has become so big that it’s impossible to go back.

"My kids don't use social media" can be translated as "I force my kids to be social outcasts who can't keep up with whatever topics are currently popular with their peers." I was a technophobe myself as a teenager, and while social media wouldn't have cured my social anxiety, if I hadn't been so stubborn, I'm sure I would have had a much easier chance at connecting with my classmates/building social relationships. I missed out on so much information about events/popular opinions/hobbies because I wasn't on any social media. (For example if a teacher was universally hated, I'd have no clue about it, and thus couldn't join in on conversations about them. Call it shallow, but gossip about teachers is a major bonding thing for school kids.) You can rant about not giving in to "peer pressure" all you want, but the fact is that humans are hardwired for this stuff. I overcame my stubbornness and have a few social media accounts now, and I'll never go back.

4:22 Technology doesn’t bring out the worst in society. It can cause problems and it can be used as a way for some ppl to start an argument. There have always been people who have some hate towards ppl but the internet just makes it easier to see all of those ppl. Technology can be used as a tool to either help or hurt ppl. Some use it to help other or to get help and other use it to hurt ppl. The internet isn’t perfect partly because of some of the ppl that use it. Before the internet there was already so much violence there were wars that happened. There haven’t been any worse with internet being around there was a time when we got close to having one. The internet can help ppl be more aware of the problems of the world and ppl can help spread that awareness

My biggest issue with the documentary is that there's little to no discourse around alternatives and solutions to the problems mentioned. All they hint at is that these big tech companies shouldn't self-regulate their content and that regulation should come from a higher governing source...and that there shouldn't be much advertising and tracking thrown in our faces. So how do we apply both into today's social media sites?

It don't think this was a personal attack on internet users. I think you might have missed the point. I'm literally the main demographic targeted as "dumb kid with phone" and I'm gonna be honest I really agreed with this documentary. It's trying to start conversation and warn us about what social media can do. I've noticed myself that I have wasted wayyy too much time on YouTube. I don't think they are saying the internet is bad. It's more about how social media's main focus is to make money and as a result it has began to cause harm. I don't think this documentary is perfect but it for sure opened my eyes. Especially the parts about political divide being exacerbated by this corporate scheme that social media functions on. For sure social media has done a lot of good but we should not dismiss the negatives nor should we let it continue to happen. I really liked the message that encouraged people to go out and enjoy the world without the worry on the online one every once in a while.

I keep seeing people saying that it’s only the adults going on about this, some almost acting like it’s an issue invented by the older generations. I know some kids may thrive with it, but some of these concerns are completely real. My sibling is autistic, and has developed such an unhealthy relationship with several social media sites to the point they hyperfixates on it so intensely, it almost overrides their other senses. It’s become dangerous because it’s impacted their ability to eat and their ability to sleep. And yet, extended time off social media makes them physically ill - anxiety so intense it basically takes control of their body, and it’s been a steady deterioration. It’s been a constant battle for them to not be so affected by it and to overcome that addiction and obsession - one that they don’t even fully understand, even with all the help we’ve been trying to give. It’s genuinely scary. They can’t live without it, but living with it is, essentially, slowly killing them. Some kids might not have any problems with social media. Other kids have their lives controlled by it.

I saw this documentary about a week ago, and one thing I remember really not liking was how the entire show was spent complaining about social media and how it's the cause of our depression, addiction, insecurities, poor work ethic, etc. But never once did they mention what to do about any of it. In my opinion, it is in the hands of the creators to make sure they're not taking advantage of us- BUT it is our job as well to be aware. There should be "Social Media Awareness" classes available- not just how to stay safe on the Internet, but how to spot fake news, how to cut yourself off/self-control when it comes to scrolling through a feed, self-discipline, self-love in the face of lies and/or other, "prettier" people. Things like that. At the beginning of the documentary, a quote from Sophocles appears, saying that with every super powerful thing that appears there is going to be evil to it (or something along those lines, don't quote me). But this documentary contradicts itself, failing to realize that for there to be an evil there has to be a good. A strong, consistent good.

this vid came across as a very biased one and i felt like you wanted them to cover the positive side a lil more. but the point of this docu was to highlight the bigger issues that can stem from it. like they clearly start off within the first few mins saying that they are gonna reach a conclusion on how its bad and whats the actual issue that they fear. they were aiming towards talking about the flip side of the coin. they are insiders they already think of internet and social media as a positive thing. so them talking about what we prolly assume they must be thinking wouldnt hold much weight.

I would liken the Internet to a river where a deer or a gazelle goes to quench it's thirst, then unknown to it, there lurks a crocodile, that is waiting to pounce on it. All of us "go" to the internet to seek some good, to find information, sell something, to connect with others, to learn something, play games, follow news and get entertained, but underneath this internet, there lurks a giant evil being waiting to pounce on us. Internet corrupts a person, it changes our minds, thinking and destroys your personality. It sets a person to a path that would lead her or him to hell. I would say internet has done more bad to me, than it has brought me good and I have decided to cut down internet to basic email, a few apps and a few videos.

I think you didn't get the point of the documentary. The whole point of it, in my opinion is not to discredit social medias, but rather the way those social medias have been adapted only for profitability purposes, only considerating the user as a merchandise. Social medias are a great idea, but they shouldn't be thought for profitability first.

out of the whole one thing that struck me the most in this video was when they said they do not allow this to their kids ( i have not watched the documentary yet but of what i saw in the video) so what now..they are gonna restrict them from insta and all..and that's gonna work? no yes, I agree the silicon valley has a wholee organization itself with people limiting tech for kids.. but these are people of 2020 and will stay here after... do you think stopping them would be effective? they in some way shape or form will be exposed to this..... and what about other kids...they increase your monetary benefits..huh? what about their psychological development in a weird way, all this would ultimately lead to only a bunch of people having power in their hands after a good amount of time(and those will be kids of the silicon valley..just think about it)

Was there any talk about social media giving false narratives and pushing their beliefs on everyone? I haven’t watched the documentary so I’d actually like to know. Social media is a great thing but the problem is that social media shouldn’t be allowed to influence every decision in today’s society. The only example I’m going to give is google using advertising, false narrative pages, and incorrect information shown as facts in 2016, which google represents have said pushed more than 5 million votes to Hilary in the presidential election. I’m not going to say my beliefs on the 2 candidates at that time but as a society every person should be concerned with that information. No 5 companies should have as much power, social media has so much power today which is given threw their influence and their public opinion. Social media companies use that power to the fullest extent often as well, it’s wrong and everyone should be worried about it. I don’t know I’ve got more to say but I didn’t watch the documentary so I shouldn’t talk, but hopefully at least 1 person can read this and see that social media companies have a very dark side to them.

These people created stuff and they just wanna take it away. Technology can be good and bad but it helps us connect with other people and make friends. If they take this stuff away so many people will lose their source of income. I think these people are not seeing the good this has done in our lives.

Yoy missed the whole point of the film. It's to bring awareness about we're being manipulatee by the industry. How we're wasting our life on a screen. What you decide to do about it is up to you. Plus, just look at what you did. You literally included a feeaking ad in the middle of your video. Don't you see you're just part of the whole problem?

This video reminds me of this podcast special called " rabbit hole" by the new york times... its an interesting listen and mostly documents the YouTube viewing history of one person who was addicted to social media.. (they also interviewed some other people) and it's interesting how this adult man went from watching music videos to literally nazi YouTube videos and then over time moved from right wing conspiracy theorist to liberal fact checker.. it's like such a strange journey and it's not even that old a show.. as some of the episodes were recorded early this yr

I'm 13 and I kind agree when adults say that technology is rotting our brains. Social media tears us apart and we need more alternatives for stuff instead of online stuff.

Imagine being so detached that you aren't willing to adapt but happily deprive your entire family of something that you have the ability to limit and monitor. It's almost as if they refuse to actually parent their kids. I know that the message isn't that all internet is bad, more that things are shouted into echo chambers and technology is harder to cut away than just a decade ago. However, people are just handing their kids a phone and then complaining that they're using it because they don't like it... It's a cowboy blaming the shoes for hurting the horse. You put the shoe on, you trotted them through the desert, and don't want to own up to the fact you never cleaned or maintained them. Some people are right about the message maybe being missed in the video, but the blame game is still being played in the documentary.
