“Can I Be Manipulated? Can You?”

The Great Hack (2019)

From Wikipedia:

The Great Hack is a 2019 documentary film about the Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data scandal, produced and directed by Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer, both previous documentary Academy Award nominees (The Square, Control Room, Startup.com). The film’s music was composed by EMMY Nominated Film Composer Gil Talmi. The Great Hack premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in the Documentary Premieres section and was released by Netflix on July 24, 2019.

The documentary focuses on Professor David Carroll of Parsons and The New School, Brittany Kaiser (former business development director for Cambridge Analytica), and British investigative journalist Carole Cadwalladr. Their stories interweave to expose the work of Cambridge Analytica in the politics of various countries, including the United Kingdom’s Brexit campaign and the 2016 United States elections

How It’s Done

Conclusion

We think we’re immune to political or social influence, but when posts are delivered to your Facebook page, they are intended for you and you alone, in order to help you make up your mind, if you’re sitting on the fence, or to reinforce your position, if you’ve already decided how you feel about something/anything/political parties/social divides.

So, when it comes to the questions raised in the title, how can we not be manipulated?

(And, just so that there is no contrary influence from sources other than the ones they want you to see, Facebook has changed its terms and conditions, so that starting on the 1st of October, they can close any accounts that are spreading ‘fake news’.)

Is it time to shut Facebook down?
