Social Media Documentary Assignment

Social Media Documentary Assignment
Ideally, I want you to watch “The Social Dilemma,” a recent film about the way social media companies make their platforms engaging to the point of addiction. Watching this movie requires a Netflix subscription and — although many of you have one — I am aware not everyone does. Because of that, I have a second option that you can view for no charge. Please choose the alternative movie only if you can’t access Netflix.
If you do not have Netflix, I want you to view the PBS documentary “Generation Like.” This film was released in 2014, so the content isn’t nearly as fresh, but it still contains interesting information … made even more fascinating if you take time to research what the people featured in the film have been up to over the past six years. You can stream “Generation Like” at the above link.
Whichever film you watch, pay close attention because you will respond to a series of prompts outlined below.
IF YOU WATCHED “THE SOCIAL DILEMMA,” ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS
1. “The Social Dilemma” explains how a person can get sucked into a rabbit hole that he/she might have avoided if it weren’t for social media. Explain how this works, according to the documentary.
2. A number of people with extensive experience working for social media companies are interviewed in “The Social Dilemma.” How do they feel about the platforms they helped create?
2. What was the most surprising thing you learned in “The Social Dilemma”? If you don’t feel as though you learned anything, you can instead reflect on the most important message in “The Social Dilemma.”
3. Have you noticed any of the phenomenons described in “The Social Dilemma” in your own life? Don’t just answer yes or no. Go into some detail using examples from the film. If your answer is no, feel free to explain why you think you may have avoided the issues that are covered.
4. Do you think “The Social Dilemma” offers a fair portrayal of social media? Don’t simply answer that it is or isn’t fair. Explain why you believe what you do using examples from the film.
IF YOU WATCHED “GENERATION LIKE,” ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS
1. With social media, there is now greater interactivity between performer and audience than in decades past. How is this exhibited in “Generation Like”?
2. How have people like Tyler Oakley distinguished themselves using social media, and how do they monetize their content?
3. What feedback did Daniela Diaz face, and how did she respond?
4. What do you believe “Generation Like” says about the quest for fame? Do you see this phenomenon as good, bad or neutral?
5. Did this program change your view of social media?
6. Optional: What has happened with Daniela Diaz and Steven “Baby Scumbag” Fernandez since this documentary aired.
Your response, not including copied questions, should be at least 400 words. To be clear, that is 400 words total … not 400 words per question. This assignment is worth 25 points, and it will be graded credit/no credit.
