Format

Summary
With nearly a billion people all over the world having signed on, Facebook has fundamentally changed the way millions of people connect and communicate – but not without consequences.. Facebook Follies looks at some of the unexpected results and impact, negative and positive, of people sharing their personal information on social media sites. Our relationships, our thoughts, our pastimes, our memories, our lives and deaths are all now routinely posted online. Social media represents a paradigm shift in the way we communicate, and inevitably, such change is accompanied by mishaps and trouble, as we learn new limits. Facebook Follies introduces us to people whose lives were dramatically changed for the worse because of indiscreet or questionable posts, or as the victims of online criminal activity -- they lost their jobs, their marriages, their dignity, or even ended up in jail. The film also profiles positive stories of people who found love, were able to reconnect with long-lost family members, or used the platform to publicly mourn the memory of the deceased. The film includes some well-known stories, as well as others not very well-known, and commentary from experts in social media and journalism. Shot on location in Canada, the US and the UK, Facebook Follies is an engaging journey – and cautionary tale -- through one of today’s most pervasive forces of social communication.. ADVISORY. -55 Minute version Includes segments on sexual indiscretion. -42 Minute version is PG-13 for some language and scenes.
