Two new productions about social media are headed our way as stories about both Facebook and Twitter are being adapted for the screen. Ineffable Pictures is making Fakebook, a film about the adventures of one ambitious Facebook user. Meanwhile, Lionsgate TV is bringing on Nick Bilton to adapt his book Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship, and Betrayal for the small screen.

First, Fakebook. And yes, I’m sorry to break the news to all you Arrested Development fans, but that says Fakebook not Fakeblock, like my overly-optimistic mind first read. Still, while it won’t be as great as a feature film about George Michael developing apps, this Fakebook story does have potential.

The film will be based on Dave Cicirelli’s memoir Fakebook: A True Story Based on Actual Lies. It chronicles one man’s efforts at reinventing his life, or at least his online presence. »
