It also exposes how our every move is monitored, with the synopsis reading: "This documentary-drama hybrid explores the dangerous human impact of social networking, with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations."
Former employees of huge tech companies including Facebook, Google, Twitter and Instagram have shared their knowledge as well as issuing some serious warnings to social media users.
It has left many viewers horrified, with one writing on Twitter: "Don't watch The Social Dilemma … immediate anxiety I’m ready to throw the whole phone away.
"I feel scammed and like someone's watching me all the time."
Another added: "The Social Dilemma is the scariest and most amazing thing I've ever seen on Netflix."
A third agreed, writing: "You need to watch The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It’s mind blowing and honestly.. makes me feel dirty. It’ll make you rethink social media."
Their comments aren't surprising considering the stark warning issued in the trailer by the experts.
One said: "What I want people to know is that everything they are doing online is being watched, is being tracked.
"Every single action you take is carefully monitored and recorded."
"What [people] don't realise is there's entire teams of engineers whose job is to use your psychology against you."
"I always felt that fundamentally it was a force for good – I don't know if I feel that way anymore."
