Are we creating a digital dystopia?

Is the brave new digital world reducing humanity to a set of data and devices? Are we being served by impersonal algorithms that strip us of our individuality? Are we becoming desensitized by amateur videos and selfies of horrific events where those who are present are more interested in capturing and sharing the blood and gore rather than helping? Are we complicit in creating this world and what, if anything, can we do about it except for becoming Snowdens and "Anonymous" hackers? Is something such as a Digital Global Compact viable?
