A Netflix Algorithmic Play

I have decided to play with my Netflix account and transform it (with a little help from the Netflix algorithm) into a romantic movie selection.

I am trying to prove that Netflix collect tons of data of each user, uses the information to develop a individual profile and uses it to develop my profile in a way to raise my interest in waching more and more movies. The algorithm creates a world of its own interpretation and is therefore not objective. Maybe the word “prove” is not fully correct as it is a fact well known about Netflix.

I used steller to develop a day to day screenshot diary and posted the results via Pinterest on Twitter and my Liveblog.

Have a look into the mixed results of my algorithmic play.
