PREVIEW: New documentary about internet privacy shows filmmaker’s confrontation with Facebook CEO

A new documentary about internet privacy, which features an awkward confrontation with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, opened in select theaters last week. “Terms and Conditions May Apply” shows the film’s director Cullen Hoback confronting Zuckerberg outside his California home.

“Do you still think privacy is dead? What are your real thoughts on privacy?” Holback asks sarcastically as Zuckerberg approaches him.

“Are you guys recording?” Zuckerberg replies. “Can you please not?”

In an interview with Agence France-Presse, Holback said he wanted to make Zuckerberg get a taste of what privacy infringement is like.

“I just wanted him to say, ‘Look, I don’t want you to record me,’ and I wanted to say, ‘Look, I don’t want you to record us.”

The Facebook CEO has infamously changed his network’s privacy terms regularly in the past. In a little-known internet chat conversation when he was 19, Zuckerberg referred to his users as “dumb f*cks” for trusting him with their information.

Hobeck’s documentary has received wide critical praise.

Watch a preview for the film in the video below.

    I think that there is a lot of overreaction going on here if this is representative of the movie as a whole. For example the man who said that once something has been digitized it is no longer private. I have lots of information on my computer that has never been shared online and is therefore private. Things only become accessible after you share it online.

    People who have been paying attention know that once you post something online it is out there forever and you can never say that it is private again. Sure we have a lot of stupid kids who post embarrassing things online and then there is Anthony Weiner who went out of his way to destroy his political career by posting embarrassing photos online.

    The information that commercial entities are collecting is only an extension of what they had been doing for many years before the advent of the internet. What the internet did for them was to streamline the process and gather more information more quickly and over a shorter period of time.

    Is anyone really going to give up all of the conveniences that the digital age has brought us in order to attempt to escape from the prying eyes of businesses who want to know what we want and like in order to better market their products to us? I seriously doubt it.
