I recently saw the horror satire flick Scream 4 (or stylishly written SCRE4M) and it brought up some good points about social networking. In the opening scene, two girls discuss Facebook and how information can be made available to others, including strangers.

She was refreshingly poised and humble, especially when she recounted her memory of hanging out with Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow in the bathroom. Apparently all the Glee girls, Gwyneth, and Beyonce were in the bathroom together to fix someone’s dress when suddenly someone popped out a box of mints.
