While we may puzzle over its stance on privacy and worry about the reams of data collected about its users, it’s hard to escape the grip of Facebook. The service has proven to be a quantum leap in how we communicate and share information, but if you have yet to join, should you? That’s the premise of the upcoming documentary “Why I’m Not On Facebook.”
Directed by Brant Pinvidic, the movie follows his journey as he decides whether or not to log on with the social media giant. Family, friends, total strangers and celebrities all weigh in, as Pinvidic explores the benefits of staying in touch with old friends as well as the perils of a service that gives pick-up artists and thieves a way to ply their trade on a keyboard. In this exclusive clip, the filmmaker speaks with the Winklevoss twins, who you might remember as Mark Zuckerberg‘s nemeses in “The Social Network.” They discuss how they were “sandbagged” by the Facebook CEO, but also make a surprising revelation about their use of the site.
“Why I’m Not On Facebook” premieres today at the Woodstock Film Festival. Watch below.
