The Dark Web is a secret online space that allows users complete anonymity. As online surveillance increases, this virtual world has grown in popularity.

For some it is a place where criminals can operate - a shadowy underworld where users can purchase anything from illegal drugs to credit card details. For others, it is a haven, free from the government control and censorship that threatens the regular web. As users, programmers, governments and businesses battle over control of our online world, Horizon takes a trip through the Dark Web and meets the scientists, engineers and programmers fighting to save the internet.

Thousands of teenagers and young adults do this regularly, and for most, it's one of the highlights of their week.

In this revealing documentary, Nathalie Emmanuel, star of hit soap Hollyoaks, investigates this growing phenomenon and gains some insights into the trend. Why are young people doing this, what are they getting out of it and what are they risking?

The Digital Blackout tells the story of a high school that conducted a "Social Experiment." They challenged their student body (and faculty) to put away the Facebook and Twitter, the text and instant messaging, and record their experience.

The Digital Blackout is eye opening. It highlights, among other things:
~ The astounding amount of time that we routinely devote to online social networks
~ The face-to-face experiences and real friendships that the internet has maybe devalued
~ The stress brought on by our over-connectedness
~ And (yes!) the many benefits of our digitally inter-connected world that one rightly misses during a Blackout.

The Digital Blackout also includes the latest research on the effects of multitasking and social networking from acclaimed Stanford Professor Clifford Nass. In the excerpt below, Nass explains the importance of face-to-face relationships and the impact they have in developing one's emotional intelligence. The Digital Blackout is equal parts intriguing documentary, motivation for a fun challenge, and fascinating social experiment for the 21st century.

With nearly a billion people all over the world having signed on, Facebook has fundamentally changed the way millions of people connect and communicate ˇV but not without consequences.

Facebook Follies looks at some of the unexpected results and impact, negative and positive, of people sharing their personal information on social media sites. Our relationships, our thoughts, our pastimes, our memories, our lives and deaths are all now routinely posted online. Social media represents a paradigm shift in the way we communicate, and inevitably, such change is accompanied by mishaps and trouble, as we learn new limits.

Facebook Follies introduces us to people whose lives were dramatically changed for the worse because of indiscreet or questionable posts, or as the victims of online criminal activity -- they lost their jobs, their marriages, their dignity, or even ended up in jail. The film also profiles positive stories of people?who found love, were able to reconnect with long-lost family members, or used the platform to publicly mourn the memory of the deceased. The film includes some well-known stories, as well as others not very well-known, and commentary from experts in social media and journalism.

Shot on location in Canada, the US and the UK, Facebook Follies is an engaging journey ˇV and cautionary tale -- through one of today's most pervasive forces of social communication.

By Daniel Moshel

Centered around two people homebound by their disabilities who have found community online, LOGIN 2 LIFE explores the growing number of people who spend much of their lives in online virtual worlds.

Elaborate digital platforms like Second Life and World of Warcraft offer novel opportunities for friendship, sex, employment, and aesthetic experience in virtual communities populated by cartoon-like avatars. While these simulated worlds are often treated with contempt by the general media, LOGIN 2 LIFE takes a more sympathetic approach, profiling seven people deeply immersed in these worlds, and attempting to understand what each gets from their virtual life.

Paralyzed from the neck down in a car accident, 27 year-old Corey spends most of his days playing World of Warcraft, exploring a virtual landscape with far greater ease than he can move through his physical one. Alice, 60, has limited mobility due to multiple sclerosis. In Second Life, she is able to draw on her skills as an educator and volunteer to run an in-game business that provides resources to other disabled people.

We also meet a diverse cast of characters from around the world, whose different online engagements illustrate the range of motivations for choosing a largely virtual existence. Kevin, a middle-aged family man in Florida, makes his living selling virtual sex devices within the Second Life universe. Philippe, in France, is an award-winning director of World of Warcraft machinima who has turned is hobby into a career. In China, a family of World of Warcraft "gold farmers" toil endlessly online, earning in-game currency that can be sold for real money.

LOGIN 2 LIFE reconsiders the demarcation usually drawn between physical and online worlds. The film asks us to consider whether the people we have met are exceptions, driven to digital immersion by particular needs, or if they are pioneers of a lifestyle that will soon become commonplace.

A risque business

In the 1990s, Louis spent time at the hub of America's adult entertainment industry - the San Fernando Valley in California - to find out if being a male porn star really was one of the best jobs a man could have and to explore the psychological effects of performing one of the most intimate acts of human behaviour in public and on film.

Now he goes back and finds that 15 years on everything has changed. Pornography is far more mainstream, the rapid expansion of the internet means that an industrial quantity of porn is available at the click of a mouse, much of it free of charge, and new technology means that performers can upload their own films and have direct contact with their fans.

Louis catches up with some of the people he met before to see how they have fared over the years, and finds one has fled, one was sent to prison and another killed himself. He also meets some of the newer performers and finds out how they cope in a business that offers less money, more insecurity and more stress than ever before.

One suicide is a tragedy. But what happens when a community is rocked by a series of suicides, one after another, all of them young people? Do the families mourn in private, fearful that expressing their grief publicly could result in more deaths? Or does the community come together, so that individual families can tell their stories and in turn do something to combat the insidious face of depression and its consequences?

Until now the accepted wisdom has been to publicly downplay suicide but in speaking to families who've lost children, reporter Liz Jackson found that young people are in fact talking about suicide all the time on facebook. Social media has the potential to influence behaviour, for better or worse, and it's now accepted that suicide prevention strategies need to deal with this. As one parent explains, it was only after the death of her child that she realised her daughter had been discussing her depression and suicidal thoughts on facebook. When calls and messages kept coming addressed to her deceased daughter the mother was forced to write:

Four Corners tells the story of one community in a major Australian city where the threat of repeated suicides amongst young people became so overwhelming that families and community leaders, backed by mental health experts, held an old fashioned public meeting to allow the families and friends of the victims to tell their stories. It was a bold and controversial step but it was the only way they felt they could deal with the situation. In doing so the community hoped they could break the terrible silence and find a way to confront this silent enemy. You will be shocked by what you see.

Talking about a revolution

Mark Zuckerberg's journey from Harvard psychology and computer science student to the founder of one of the most influential new businesses in the world in seven action-packed years is the stuff of legend. With an exclusive interview with Zuckerberg himself and access to Facebook's offices in Silicon Valley and its most senior staff, this documentary tells the story of Zuckerberg's extraordinary rise, and examines his new challenge in combining his idealistic vision of a more open world with the business potential that Facebook now represents.

The film explains how Facebook, now said to be worth up to $100 billion, can act as a giant market research database, and it asks what all that time on Facebook is doing to our real-world relationships. As the company heads towards a likely stock market flotation, it's also a timely examination of the threats to Facebook, from Google and others, and of the critical role that Zuckerberg himself plays in determining its prospects.

Social networking sites are open to anyone however offer a low level of security and protection. Because students often post detailed and specific information, they can be more easily stalked by strangers or even acquaintances. The purpose of most of these networks is to allow individuals and groups to keep in touch and track the daily lives of each other. By keeping things at the status quo on the social networking sites, the result is a micro society of friends that is more open than ever before. However students don't often consider the dangers that social networking introduces to their lives. The content they place on the networks can easily make them vulnerable to all sorts of threats. Some of these threats are minor, but some can be incredibly severe. A photo shared between two people can quickly become a viral phenomenon. By using the text messaging service on their cell phones, computers or other electronic devices, teens engage in sexting by sending flirtatious messages back and forth. Sexting is currently illegal under federal law. It falls under the creation, distribution and possession of child porn and is a felony offense. While some lawmakers are working to change this, others are prosecuting both those taking the pictures and those possessing them.

Subjects Covered Include:
~ What are the benefits of Social Networking Sites?
~ What are the dangers of Social Networking?
~ What should you not post on your site?
~ What is the impact from incriminating & inappropriate information posted on network sites?
~ Can postings on a network site effect employment?
~ The Felony charges associated with sexting

A person normally wouldn't shout out the details of a secret hookup or give a credit card to a total stranger and say "Max it out for me." Yet as this video playfully points out, in effect that's what people do when they post indiscreetly on social networking sites or are duped by phishing scams. Think b4 u Post uses a light touch to deliver some very serious information on how people can protect their reputation and guard their privacy online while still having a good time using social networking sites. On the "reputation" side, viewers are advised to keep their postings positive, remember that "intended readers" (friends) are only a subset of "actual readers" (friends, teachers, prospective employersˇK), and more. And on the "privacy" side, viewers are made aware of the consequences of cyberbullying and defamation as well as steps they can take to safeguard their personal information and avoid online/offline predators. Data mining is also discussed.

Theodor Adorno was an influential member of the Frankfurt School of social theory ˇX a German-born intellectual who fled Nazi Germany for America, and whose work anticipates and informs much post-modern theory. In this revolutionary "participatory documentary," digital filmmaker Georg Boch, one of more than 200 people that belong to a Facebook group called "Adorno Changed My Life," sets out to learn how Adorno's work has touched the group's lives.

For the film, Boch solicits videos and Skype conversations. Unlike the traditional documentary, this approach allows each of the participants to frame how they want to be perceived and to direct their own conversations.

For art historian Travis English, who shamelessly multitasks on camera, reading Adorno for the first time was like "swallowing a stick of dynamite." Australian intellectual Ivan Krisjansen (who uses a portrait of Adorno as his Facebook profile photo) compares it to "climbing Mount Everest, standing on the peak and being able to see forever."

Digital culture critic Dennis Redmond ˇX who at times speaks in front of a shelf full of teddy bears ˇX sees parallels between Adorno's work and the digital commons. Redmond encourages viewers to read random pages from Adorno to see how they seamlessly fit into a whole in the same way that fragments of digital culture mesh.

It's also a metaphor for the film itself: far-flung, isolated members of an online group whose individual contributions are transformed into a cultural product. The film also makes no attempt to hide its digital roots. Rather than cleaning up time lags or sharpening focus, it celebrates the imperfections of digital communication.

FACEBOOK'S "ADORNO CHANGED MY LIFE" resists the temptation to offer a potted guide to the philosopher's thought. Instead, it allows its participants to set the terms of the conversation, and to reveal their relationships to Adorno's work. Even if they feel, as does Moldavian emigrant Vitalie Bezdiga, that "Theodore Adorno is of no great help when it comes to jobs or employment."

Alert your employees to online hazards and show them how to use social media wisely and appropriately.

Social media is everywhereˇXincluding our workplaces. While it can serve useful business purposes, it can also open the door to hackers, circulate rumors and abusive comments, create public relations nightmares, and be a real drag on productivity.

In fact, many employees spend up to two hours every workday on non-business related websitesˇXoften not realizing how their multiple side-trips can consume their time and lead to other problems, as well. And it's not just during the workday. After-hours posts can also have an impact if they violate policies or cause friction between coworkers.

So how do you avoid the dangers of potential harassment claims, exposure to computer viruses and malware, and release of confidential data? And how do you convince employees that spending too much company time on social media is just not OK?

This new video will help. Dramatic scenes filmed on location in a variety of industries show:
~ A receptionist's computer is hacked after she opens a suspicious email attachment.
~ A waiter posts a photo from behind-the-scenes that could harm a restaurant's reputation.
~ An office worker snipes at a coworker through social media, making everyone take sides.
~ Text messages are used to pursue unwelcome romantic interest in a colleague.
~ Trade secrets are released before a new product launch and quickly captured by a competitor.
~ Social networking and online video games create more workˇXand resentmentˇXfor coworkers.

Technology cannot be avoidedˇXfew of us could get our jobs done without it. But it needs to be used wisely and appropriately. Take advantage of this new release to make an impression on employees: "Do your own stuff on your own time and THINK before you post."
