FACEBOOK OBSESSION (THE)
Started by three kids in a Harvard dorm room, Facebook now boasts over 800 million users and affects society in ways many people haven’t realized. This CNBC Original documentary delivers a comprehensive look at how the Internet phenomenon began, evolved, and now influences everyday life - or, in some cases, not-so-ordinary life. Featuring case studies of events prompted by Facebook, including an account of a girl reunited with her birth mother as well as a woman who lost her job due to online postings, the program explores the intense privacy debate that Facebook has provoked while shedding light on the ubiquitous appeal of the Facebook profile - a template of self-expression deployed (in diverse ways) from your local police station to the White House.
