The year 2010 was rife with Facebook movies, the most popular being the Oscar-winning David Fincher-directed The Social Network (2010) and the critically acclaimed
mockumentary documentary Catfish (2010).
Delving into the world of the social networking community, The Social Network explores its unscrupulous origins, while Catfish gives insight on how social networks can impact one’s life in unexpected and mysterious ways.
Made on a shoe-string budget, Catfish (2010) is about a friendship formed from a distance on Facebook that ventures to the next level when one party decides to go on a road trip to seek out the other party. There begins the mystery.
Who really is that person with whom you made a virtual connection? Are they really that physically fit or was their profile picture actually taken ten years ago? Or worse… is that even their picture?
With Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, StumbleUpon, and many more social networking sites budding, might we see more social networking movies in the near future? Outside of the documentary/drama genre? What about action?
Glad you asked. Here’s a hilarious clip by Bath Boys Comedy exploring the action-packed world of, drum roll please…… The Professional Facebook Stalker. Enjoy!
