Facebook and you - the story of an asymmetrical relationship

Most of us are only too happy to share private information on Facebook and few of us give much thought to the fact that we've given the company permission to use this information for its own gain. This blissful ignorance also extends to the social media giant itself – for what do we really know about Facebook and its motives? Why, for example, does the company keep user data even after the user has deleted it? FACEBOOKISTAN is a critical documentary that will make you think twice before leaving your next digital footprint in Facebook's eternal memory.
