What Would an ‘Honest’ Facebook Movie Look Like?
If you’re a Facebook user, by now you’ve probably received your very own movie.
In honor of its tenth year, Facebook has given us all the gift of a little one-minute movie looking at our own time on the social-networking site. They range from emotional to funny to vapid to sort of misleading.
While mine did hit a couple of actual high points — my engagement, publication of my first novel — it also featured a photo of former Ad Age Editor Jonah Bloom with a Colonel Sanders lookalike, another of four 40-ounce bottles of St. Ides (beware the ides of March) and something from one of last month’s snow storms. Completely overlooked: my continuing stream of angry posts during Saints games; barbecue-related travels in Texas (as well as brisket experimentation in my own backyard); Instagram photos of food; the great Velveeta shortage; and the approximately six million photos of my dogs.
