Interesting and revealing. Covers distributing facts about the 2016 presidential election and Brexit told with interviews and facts. It’s long but if you are interested to learn about the dark side of social media and how your data can be misused, it’s worth the 2 hours.

Revealing. Insights: “Data are human rights” “Last year Data surpassed oil in its value” wow! “Data is being taken from us (that we are gifting) and used without our awareness or consent, for manipulating our behavior. Specially in the context of democratic processes - Voting” Psyops = psychological operations. I mean, this is not new but this level of manipulation is very scary. “Can we literally have a free and fair election in any country in the world?” The “own your data” thing hmm not sure about that. Another strategy of capitalization?

Interesting and disturbing Netflix documentary about data and social media! Some bits are really good and others are ‘meh’
