Absolute Motivation has this short documentary on how social media is designed to be as addictive as possible in order to maximize profit.

After everything that has been going on with the privacy crisis and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg going to Washington to speak with members of Congress, I felt that this video was timely.
