A new film “The Creepy Line,” which contends Google and Facebook pose a threat not only to privacy but to the economy and elections, is now available for purchase on Amazon.com and streaming on Amazon Prime.
Along with showing how the big tech companies “know more about you than your closest relative or friend,” the documentary from Wandering Foot Productions features peer-reviewed research showing how the data can be used to manipulate opinions about products, services and politicians.
“We may have signed-up for these services, but I doubt anyone expected their data and search habits could or would be used to manipulate them,” said producer M.A. Taylor.
Debuting as President Trump raises the profile of the issue, the film contends Google has crossed its executive chairman’s self-described “creepy line,” not only invading the privacy of millions of users but using its monopolistic stature to suppress conservative views and influence elections.
