THIS WEEK WE'RE LOVING...
by Maddy de Winter, 8th October, 2019
So i'm sure you're all aware but every week we share what we've all been loving (apart from Candy Kittens sweets obviously). It's Tuesday so it's time for another weekly dose of "This Week We're Loving". Who knows maybe you'll discover something new!
Jack E, our Operations intern: I watched 'The Great Hack' on Netflix, might be a little late to the party for it though.
This Netflix documentary explores how a data company named Cambridge Analytica came to symbolise the dark side of social media in the wake of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. And what begins as one man's quest to see his personal data morphs into an investigation and exposé that impacts democracy's very future. Watch it here!
