Everyday Tech Rewind - The Social Dilemma on Netflix

This week's episode of ET was washed out by the mess in DC. So, we've dug waaaaay back the archives to three months ago for this week's Everyday Tech.


On this episode of Everyday Tech, the guys deep dive into the issue of addiction to technology and specifically, social media. The topic was spurned on by the Netflix docu-drama The Social Dilemma.


According to the filmmakers, and their subjects, this is the dilemma.


Never before have a handful of tech designers had such control over the way billions of us think, act, and live our lives.


From the official site of the doc:

The Social Dilemma blends documentary investigation and narrative drama to disrupt the disrupters, unveiling the hidden machinations behind everyone’s favorite social media and search platforms.


So, how stuck in your own tech rabbit-hole are you? Can you change? Do you feel you need to change?


Watch the official trailer for the documentary by clicking the picture above.
