Really Interesting!
2 November 2015 | by (Oxnard, California) – See all my reviews

As a father of two whose kids are just about to reach "facebook age," this documentary was really informative. It really has touched all of our lives and this movie is proof! There's so much good stuff in here, I can't recommend it enough. I've never really used facebook (it was before my time, haha!), but I feel like I've learned so much in these few short ninety minutes, maybe I should start! Probably not though. This movie really made me think about how social media has completely changed our world in new and strange ways, ways we never could have imagined.

I especially loved the crazy cast of characters that Brant meets on his journey. It's fascinating that so many people could use the same piece of internet software, and it has so many different effects on their lives. Some of them have been improved, some of them not so much! But that's really how life works, isn't it? And that brings us back to what really makes this movie so great. It's not about Facebook, it's about life. And how our lives are now filtered through Facebook, changing them is fascinating ways. I will tell all my friends about this movie just as soon as I leave the house in the morning. Maybe I should be on Facebook? Who knows!
