Check It Out: Intel & Toshiba’s Social Film “The Beauty Inside”

Watch The First Episode!

I pretty much use Facebook exclusively to post pictures of my dog and complain about the outcomes of my favorite reality TV competition shows. But plenty of other people — and companies — use the social networking platform in more creative ways. For example, Intel and Toshiba teamed up with director Drake Doremus (who did the movie “Like Crazy,” which I loved), and actors Topher Grace and Mary Elizabeth Winstead to create “The Beauty Inside,” a social film about a guy named Alex (Grace does his internal monologue) and his girlfriend Leah (Winstead). The film is broken down into a series of episodes in which, each day, Alex wakes up with a different face and body (he uses his Toshiba Portégé Ultrabook — product placement! — to document his changing appearance). The filmmakers held an audition process in order to cast actual audience members to portray Alex in his various states of appearance in the episodes and on his Facebook Timeline. You can watch the first episode above and check out the whole “Beauty Inside” social film on their Facebook page.

Facebook really pissed me off last night.

This reaction is actually highly unusual for me since I spend an exorbitant amount of time on the site. I love keeping up with old friends, watching everyone’s funny YouTube videos, and I even get a kick out of the effervescent political rants that are becoming more and more popular recently.

But for some reason as I was scrolling through the newsfeed reading a bunch of inane status updates, I suddenly thought to myself, “Who gives a crap?!”

Facebook is incredibly self indulgent. It’s a way to let everyone on your “friends” list know who, what, when, where, and how you’re doing. Also known as a way to make them jealous of all the awesome things you have and do and all the fascinating people you hang out with. Barf. Keep reading »

A mom and dad in Sedro-Wooley, Washington, took “To Catch A Predator”-esque tactics into their own hands and caught their teenage daughter’s sex offender boyfriend sending dick pics to a supposed 15-year-old girl over Facebook.

William Elms (also known as Liam) is a 19-year-old low-level/”level one” sex offender for committing third-degree child molestation. He was also dating a 17-year-old girl since April, against her parents’ wishes. So this July, with the help of one of their daughter’s friends who was a “friend” with Elms on Facebook, Jesper and Julie Myrfors created a fake Facebook profile for an imaginary 15-year-old girl and went after Elms themselves.

A couple of years after my fiancé and I broke up, I received a friend request from him on Facebook. I guess it made sense. While I’d decided that being real world friends didn’t quite work for me, I wasn’t exactly hating him either. So when I saw the friend request, I momentarily thought about accepting it. It would be the mature thing to do, right? Wrong. The mature thing to do is whatever moves you forward into a peaceful, calm, and happy existence. And looking at my ex’s new life wouldn’t help with that. So I did not accept.

Some couples are instant and true friends after their breakup. I don’t happen to know any of them, but rumor has it they exist. If those ex-couples want to be Facebook friends, so be it. But the rest of us should defriend, at least for awhile. Here are 6 of the lamest excuses for not unfriending your ex on Facebook.

1. I want to see if he says anything bad about me. Ahh, so you’re conducting your own public relations control campaign by monitoring your ex’s wall. Well, here’s a thought: If your ex is gauche enough to share anything negative about you with all of his Facebook friends, then that reflects badly on only one person: Him.  Read more …
