    This documentary was filmed in 2008 about the recent increase of technology use among teenagers. The documentary included interviews from students, teachers, and parents from a high school in New Jersey and described how teenagers are spending a majority of their time on the internet. It told stories of how this increase of technology gives teens opportunities to create new identities online, how parents should be aware of what their kids are putting on the internet, how teenagers aren't fully aware of the consequences that result from being so public with their information, how cyberbullying can sometimes lead to suicide, and how kids are becoming addicted to the internet as a result of growing up with it. I thought that this documentary was very good because it gives light to a situation that is becoming a bigger problem every day, but also how it is useful to schools and to teenagers who want to be able to communicate with their friends all of the time. I thought that the movie was directed more towards the downsides to technology and that it should be 50% of the upsides of this increase of technology and 50% of the downsides. Even though it was directed more towards the downsides, I believe that the directors did a good job with including interviews from teenagers to make it more bias. Even though it is 6 years after this movie was released, most of the information is still very relevant and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the generational gap that has occurred as a result of the increase of internet users and what baggage may come with that situation.
