I just finished watching this show “The Social Dilemma” on Netflix. It is a documentary about how social media propagates certain agendas of its own interest and influences the psyche of an individual unknowingly.
It shows the level of craziness we humans have reached with the obsession of being dependent on the internet and assuming every little information available there to be true.
How we are losing the basic intelligence of figuring out “What is Right” and “What is wrong” about the information provided to us. And, We might even use google to check its authenticity on the internet as we have lost trust in ourselves and suddenly the internet has become the “Holy Book” for everyone.
No doubt, it has certain positive aspects to it as well but do you really think you are using it in a positive manner or you are still falling in the trap by getting addicted to those video recommendations on Youtube or Instagram reels suggested to you by the AI for the satisfaction of your so-called entertainment/timepass at the severe loss of your mental, physical and psychological health.
Just take some time out of your busy schedule and watch this documentary. I am absolutely sure that it will trigger the right spots of your brain and will make you rethink about your dependency on social media to some extent.
