Netflix, The Hack

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
For those who have Netflix this is an interesting piece on Cambridge Analytics and how they were successfully able to sway elections by targeting a comparatively few swing voters.

Correction: "The Great Hack".

Just saw the preview and it looks scary. The gov't doesn't fine you $5b if you are innocent. Looking forward to watching it. Thanks for posting.

I had high hopes, but the documentary wasn't all that great. The weaponization of social media to influence is nothing new. This documentary is largely a rehash of articles and books that have been published over the last 5 years or so.

I hadn't really followed what was going on. What struck me was the implied precision with regards to targeting specific personalities. The amount of data Facebook had given to CA and the fact that CA had worked for/ advised western militaries/intelligence agencies on how to conduct elections psyops.

Thank god I'm not on FB.
