Series 4, Episode 1 - Social Media

Many of the social media technologies look benign and free - but who is getting rich from them? And how? And how are we 'paying' without realising?

Full synopsis

From the country-sized economy of Google changing the way we see adverts; to the seemingly free apps like Uber making San Francisco the economic centre of the world and changing the concept of local business; to social media platforms like Facebook redefining us as economic actors... the way we work, shop, meet, and think about money is profoundly changing. Many of these technologies look benign and free - but who is getting rich from them? And how? And how are we 'paying' without realising?
