Discuss with your colleagues the following questions (taken from The Social Dilema, Discussion and Action Guide (Links to an external site.)):
1. As film subject Shoshana Zuboff points out, extractive technology
has made internet companies the richest companies in the
history of humanity. How would you define their business
model? What are they selling?
2. What do you think are the foreseeable threats that exploitative
and extractive technologies pose to our society?
3. Film subject Tristan Harris says, If something is a tool, it
genuinely is just sitting there, waiting patiently [to be used].
If something is not a tool, its demanding things from you, its
seducing you, its manipulating you. It wants things from you.
Do you think social media is a tool for you? How might you make
3. Who do you think is responsible for solving the social dilemma?
What should they do? Is there anything you can do?
