Taking to social media, one person pointed at the hypocrisy of the film, stating: "Its intentions are good, but @Netflix doc #TheSocialDilemma is as manipulative as @Facebook."

But the idea that Netflix is any different in the way that it seeks out attention using algorithms and notifications while hoovering up personal data is nonsense. #thesocialdilemma #netflixdown #shameless."
