As you have probably heard by now, Netflix recently released a documentary under the name The Social Dilemma that touches on one of the most significant advances in all of human history — the advent of social media. This thought-provoking, interesting, and downright terrifying film will hopefully one day be discussed alongside other pivotal documentaries like Harlan County, USA, An Inconvenient Truth, and Blackfish.

With that being said, here six things to know about the Netflix documentary before you decide to watch it for yourself.
