Facebook conundrum

Most parents are concerned about the lack of privacy and real life consequences of showing too much of your lives on social media. “Why I’m Not on Facebook” takes one father’s questions about the issues of Facebook and flips through them in a sometimes serious and sometimes hilarious methodology, trying to answer the fundamental question “Is there something wrong with Facebook? Or is there something wrong with me?”

From his crashingly inappropriate interpretation of “friends” by calling up a teen girl who’d friended him and asking about her jailed brother to landing on the doorstep of a ‘friend’ whose address was clearly listed on his profile, filmmaker Brant Pinvidic embarks on a roller coaster journey to decide whether or not he or his children should be on Facebook.

The unexpected twists that give modest fame to otherwise invisibly eccentric oddballs like The Pink Lady or a communication tool to a mutely shy fb addicted teen with 5,000 friends, “Why I’m Not on Facebook” stirs the pot for discussion without demonizing this ubiquitous tool.
