Mark Zuckerberg Appears In Online Privacy Movie “Terms and Conditions May Apply”

Posted Jul 25, 2013

chief executive officer and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is appearing in a film that focuses on how tech companies “spy” on us.  The documentary is called Terms and Conditions May Apply.  Mark Zuckerberg was approached outside of his home (Michael Moore style) and is asked to talk about privacy on the Internet.

Cullen Hoback, the director of the movie, said in an interview with Agence France-Presse that he approached Zuckerberg outside of his home and asked “Do you still think privacy is dead? What are your real thoughts on privacy?”  Zuckerberg kept asking Hoback not to record their exchange.  Hoback said that he can stop and turned off the video camera.  However, he kept recording through his spy glasses.

Hoback wanted to turn the tables on Zuckerberg in the conversation.  Hoback said: “I just wanted him to say, ‘Look, I don’t want you to record me,’ and I wanted to say, ‘Look, I don’t want you to record us.'”

This documentary is coming on the heels of the news that Edward Snowden leaked in regards to NSA spying.  The conversation between Hoback and Zuckerberg will be included in the 79 minute film.

“The craziest thing about this whole experience is that I didn’t realize I was making a horror film,” said Hoback in the interview the AFP.

The film was released on July 12th and there is a screening schedule posted on their website.
