Hot Docs highlights interesting new documentaries we’ve recently added to our collection.
Facebook Follies (DVD 10640) tells the other side of the social media story. Whereas others focus on how social media rose to dominance, this documentary focuses on the consequences of our addiction to instantaneous sharing. The effects are felt everywhere, from the downfall of politicians to people reconnecting with lost relatives.
Official description from promotional material:
An engaging journey — and cautionary tale — through one of today’s most pervasive forces of social communication. Facebook Follies looks at some of the unexpected results and impact, negative and positive, of people sharing their personal information on social media sites.
