Title
Everything is a recommendation : Netflix, altgenres and the construction of taste
Source
Knowledge organization. 42(2015) no.5, S.358-364
Year

Abstract
Netflix is a popular subscription streaming service for film and television content. The system uses non-canonical genre classifications called "altgenres" to recommend clusters of works to individual users based on their explicit and implicit preferences. Although altgenre recommendations tend to appear maximally scientific and value-neutral, they are in fact interpretive arguments in service of corporate goals. This paper explores some rhetorical elements and potential ethical ramifications of altgenres qua arguments.
