Face your Facebook

Santje announces to the editors at the Parool newspaper: “I have become friends with Nabil and Regina, and Dorien … and Steven. Would you please publish this, because people love to read these things.” Mike is standing in the Kalverstraat, where hundreds of ‘friends’ are passing by. On the Damrak square he is showing all the people there the things he likes. This is Facebook in real life. Charlotte Porskamp demonstrates the absurdity of a virtual social life in Face your Facebook: a series of short films in which two actors play a couple of average Facebook users. The audience does not know what is going on; their response is real. Exactly how much fun is life on a digital platform in the spotlight you create for yourself?
