Synopsis: 

If Facebook was a state, it would be the most powerful in the world. With 1.4 billion users, Facebook connects two thirds of the planet and holds a great deal of democratic potential. This film reveals the laws, the power and the influence of Facebook on private life and freedom of speech. The world’s largest social media outlet encourages us to share everything, however, the company is far from being transparent and it stores all the information of its users.
