Leaving Facebook is a short documentary that takes a critical look at Facebook’s influence on the collective psyche of the Millennial Generation by focusing on the relationships of three millennials at different stages of separation from Facebook.
The film examines why this group of friends are turning away from Facebook despite an explosive growth in users worldwide. Is the so-called Millennial Generation, the first generation to adopt the system as an integral part of social life, experiencing Facebook burnout?
If so, then why? Where is the genesis of the annoyances that turn people off from Facebook? The goal of the documentary is to provide insight for Facebook users into their own behavior and examine the phenomenon of Facebook burnout.
