How Do Algorithms Control Us? An Impossibly Broad Topic That We Narrowed Down To Two Topics: Social Media And Leadership. How Does Social Media Control Our Lifestyles And Minds? How Do Bots Infiltrate Our Decisions? Is Social Media Still "Organic?" How Reliable Are Internet Analytics? Isn't The Internet Fake? We Close With A Personal Discussion On How Retail Management And Big Box Retailers Are Using Algorithms To Schedule And Control Their Employees...Yes, A Big Show, Kiddies.
