Docu Chats | The Social Dilemma
Show Notes

In this episode of the Docu Chats, we talk about  Social Dilemma. We give a spotlight to social sustainability and in particular, look at how technology and social media can have damaging consequences for us and future generations. We draw similarities between push notifications and gambling, talk about how social media platforms influence our behaviour and health and discuss the business models which drive the online world. As always, we leave you with a well-curated list of changes you can make to streamline and control your online presence.
