Jakob Gottschau, Denmark, 2015

59 min.DK/Documentary

The documentary film examines the paradox of our number-one social media: encouraging us to share, it doesn't share back. Facebook has collected huge amounts of information about all of us, and we have voluntarily allowed Facebook to use this information. Yet we know very little about Facebook. The film aims
to provide a new understanding of how Facebook governs the world's biggest public space for discourse.
