'Facebook Follies' takes a look at the unexpected consequences of people sharing their personal information on social media.

A very timely 'Facebook Follies' takes a look at the unexpected consequences of people sharing their personal information on social media. Viewers meet people who lost their jobs, their marriages, their dignity, or who even ended up in jail - all because of their own or someone else's Facebook posting. To give a broader context to the events, these stories are inter-cut with reflections from experts in the areas of social change, internet security and contemporary media.
