With the Netflix doc The Social Dilemma and Hulu’s Jawline having recently explored the dark side of social media in different ways, HBO is about to continue the conversation with a documentary of their own called Fake Famous. Directed by tech journalist Nick Bilton (Hatching Twitter), the movie revolves around an intriguing experiment where they choose three young people from an open casting call and attempt to turn them into famous social media influencers. I think we can all guess where this one is heading but it seems like a compelling concept nonetheless. Fake Famous arrives on HBO Max on Feb. 2nd; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
