I saw this documentary on television and then went out and bought it to show in my business classes; the documentary itself is that good and the content is a must see for everyone. Our privacy is no longer in our hands but in that of business. "Social listening" is the term used to describe how businesses gather your personal information in order to compile data with which to more effectively separate you from your dollar. In my college classes we had a whole morning of discussion regarding what this means to us as consumers and internet users. It now becomes our responsibility to counsel those around us-young and old alike. All in all, it is disturbing that 'big brother' is watching us so intently and with our permission. Yes, I teach business-this is a great subject to explore concerning the general lack of ethics in businesses we know and love so well, and how important it is to arm ourselves with information in order to protect ourselves. The subject matter is developed properly, however sometimes the documentary progresses a little slowly, but well worth the money to buy it and the time to watch it.

This documentary was made before Edward Snowden became famous. It is so well done and informative which allows you to understand that not only you were never ever in control of your data regardless you agree or not agree to the Internet privacy agreement that you are asked to sign, and regardless if you sign or do not sign, but more importantly how your data is exchanged for financial gain by all those Giants without your consent which you happen to be in love with... Bravo.

A vital wake-up call to citizens who are seeing their privacy rights eroding in the digital age, with companies like Facebook, whose sole asset is the personal info of its 900 million users, sharing information with spying agencies. An alarming but essential documnetary

Excellent and thought-provoking. Presented many points of view and I appreciated the non-partisan look at the government's look. Let's just say that both the Republicans and Democrats have been equal-opportunity perpetrators of infringing on American citizens' privacy rights.

If you've taken George Orwell's novel "1984" seriously and questioned Big Brother, the corporatistic state structure we all live in, you already know what's in this film. The gimmick here is about the "terms and conditions" that social websites, including iTunes, force you to accept or deny. Nobody reads the terms and conditions and if you did, it would take you a long time. The contract you accept allows the owner to track you and sell your information for a profit. But are you willing to do without a cell phone, an iPod, an iPad, a Kindle, WiFi, email or Facebook?

Everything we do online and everything we do in public arenas is tracked, photographed, filmed, and all of our personal data is sold. In fact, each of us helps the corporate system make money from our personal information by signing on to all sorts of gadgets and social media in the first place.

Do you need a documentary to tell you you've been had, your freedom stolen, and that you are a willing participant in your own slavery?

While the documentary details the problem of our enslaved society, it falls short of any solution other than to suggest each of us write our Congressmen and demand your freedom and right to privacy.

I am a computer teacher and bought this near the end of the school year as a movie to show in class, and I'm so glad I did. Although it is a documentary, it got the attention of the majority of my kids (which is hard to do) because it is very well done. It has a catchy beginning and uses scenes from popular movies/tv shows to initially grab your attention, and it launches into the heavier stuff. The director uses real life situations where people did something on social media that gained the attention of law enforcement officials. My kids could not believe the theories and facts presented in this film. I cover a lot unit on Internet Safety and how use social media appropriately, but we never talk about what happens when you agree to the terms and conditions of a site.

Amazing and terrifying at the same time. A wake up call for a "click first ask questions later " approach
