Facebook Follies (1 x 60)


Facebook Follies is a one-hour documentary that takes a look at the unexpected consequences of people sharing their personal information on social media. Viewers meet people who lost their jobs, their marriages, their dignity, or who even ended up in jail - all because of their own or someone else’s Facebook posting. To give a broader context to the events, these stories are intercut with reflections from experts in the areas of social change, internet security and contemporary media.

Shot on location in Canada, the US and the UK, Facebook Follies is an engaging journey through one of today’s most pervasive forces of social change.  It is directed by multi-Gemini award winner Geoff D’Eon (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Rick Mercer’s Talking To Americans), and produced by Edward Peill (Tell Tale Productions).
