Did you read that Wiki page properly?  :P



Hence the dilemma

One good and one bad are just the both sides of a coin ;)
So it's the dark side of social media :)



Await you at the other side.... :P


Addendum :

Language evolve , I am not a denier. But this word Dilemma has special meaning in it original Greek dilēmma even before Latin borrows it. Even Fowler has one section on it in his famous Fowler's Modern English Usage. Technically and historically , this has word serviced for 500 years and I hope it to last for another century. But hey, the word "unique" has already lose his hey day, who knows what is next.


In Oxford English Dictionary OED ;


dilemma, n.

(dɪˈlɛmə, daɪ-)

Also β. 6–7 (after French) dilemme (dylem).

[a. L. dilemma, a. Gr. δίληµµα double proposition, f. δι-, twice (di-2) + λῆµµα assumption, premiss: see lemma.]

1 In Rhetoric. A form of argument involving an adversary in the choice of two (or, loosely, more) alternatives, either of which is (or appears) equally unfavourable to him. (The alternatives are commonly spoken of as the ‘horns’ of the dilemma.) Hence in Logic, a hypothetical syllogism having a conjunctive or ‘conditional’ major premiss and a disjunctive minor (or, one premiss conjunctive and the other disjunctive).
...

2 Hence, in popular use: A choice between two (or, loosely, several) alternatives, which are or appear equally unfavourable; a position of doubt or perplexity, a ‘fix’.



I grow up in part of the world writing Today as To-day, so it makes my hand itch whenever I see usage that not technically correct.

Quote
In the documentary, it is stated that social media is a "useful service that does lots of good with a parallel money machine". Social media has many beneficial qualities, a few that are mentioned in the film include the facilitation of interpersonal connection across long distances, acquiring knowledge, and even finding organ donors. However, former employees of social media companies explain how user data can be used to build models to predict user actions and how companies keep user attention to maximize the profit from advertisements.


Hence the dilemma
