Facebook on Friday rebutted Netflix’s hit documentary the social dilemmas. The film may be the first to show some viewers how social networks use algorithms to push people backwards. It also talks about how technology companies affect elections, ethnic violence, and depression and suicide rates. Some viewers told the media that they planned to delete Facebook and instagram after watching the film. < / P > < p > Facebook may be worried about the impact of the documentary on users. “Social dilemmas” appeared on Netflix’s top 10 most popular movies and TV shows in September and is still on its trend list. In an article posted on its website, Facebook talked about several of its concerns about the film, covering topics such as addiction, users being & quot; products & quot;, its algorithms, data privacy, polarization, elections and misleading. Instead of providing a nuanced look at technology, he (the filmmaker) offers a distorted view of how social media platforms work, creating a simple scapegoat for difficult and complex social problems, Facebook said. &The documentary demonizes social networks and presents a distorted view of how social networks work. &Facebook argues that their algorithm keeps what users see relevant and useful, just like Netflix, dating apps, Amazon and Uber. < / P > < p > however, one of the issues raised in the movie is that Facebook’s algorithm will learn more specific things about users, such as their favorite political party, and show them news that it thinks they will agree with. This problem won’t happen to Facebook’s competitive services. The film suggests that social networks should show viewers a mix of ideas to provide more balance. < / P > < p > Facebook also believes that instead of being driven to build features to increase the amount of time people spend using their services, the company changed in 2018, reducing 50 million hours of user time per day. < / P > < p > however, in every financial report conference call, Facebook still emphasizes the daily active users, which are growing steadily every year. These users are Facebook’s way of making money, because Facebook requires users to visit repeatedly. According to its earnings report for the second quarter of 2020, more than 1.79 billion people use Facebook every day and 2.7 billion people use Facebook every month. Facebook even provides a measure of the value of these users. The average revenue per user in the second quarter of 2020 is $7.05. < / P > < p > & quot; we have admitted that we made mistakes in 2016, Facebook Post said, referring to Russia’s intervention in the 2016 election through social media. Facebook has taken several steps to ensure the integrity of the election, such as banning new advertising the week before the election and banning those who try to make it illegal. < / P > < p > & quot; but it would be wrong to say that we allow error messages to ferment on our platform, or that we can benefit from it in some way. &Facebook said on Friday it opposes charges in social dilemmas that they spread fake news, hate speech and misinformation. Facebook said it had more than 70 fact checking partners and had removed at least 22 million hate words. Global Tech
