This is my kind-of Social Dilemma Review, and I say ‘kind-of’ because I found there wasn’t that much to review in the Netflix documentary itself. Many of the people interviewed made valid points, though the documentary offered little in the way of solutions and in my opinion, the ending was alarmist. When I made Attention Wars we wanted it to be information-dense, so this is what I’m adding to the discussion – lots of examples and information of what I consider to me the more disturbing side of social media and psychology.

The original Attention Wars series (2018) was produced in association with Screen Australia and PBS. The series was produced by Vanessa Hill and Margie Bryant, written by Bahar Gholipour and edited by Dominique Taylor. Animations by James Hutson.

Thank you again to Zeynep Tufekci, Genevieve Bell and Tim Wu for taking the time to speak with me.
