A Life Told by Facebook

A story can be told in the most diverse ways. Some are more common as traditional films of the movie or a book of four hundred pages. Others, not so much, as posts in sequence or … A video on YouTube! Yes, videos abound on the site Google, but that you need to see. It’s called “A Life on Facebook,” or A Life on Facebook.

It all starts with a login on Facebook, something trivial. And as time goes on, we find out what happens in the life of Alex Droner, the character of the video. Friends are arriving, photos displaying, romances that begin and end. All this to the sound of “Paint It, Black” by the Rolling Stones.

Have you ever stopped to think how much of your life is currently on Facebook, or Orkut, or any other social network? This left me a bit puzzled after seeing the video. It is a convenience often dangerous, that modern life brings with incredible ease.
