Series three perfectly exemplifies pretty much all the concerns I personally have regarding the use (and abuse) and dangers of modern technology, such as social media. I almost feel like I could have written some of it myself. It is so intelligently and insightfully written, which is one of the things I love about the whole show and cannot really fault any of it.
Although slightly exaggerated, it is no less believable and convincing because of it.
I felt the same way after watching the movies Disconnect, and "Men, Women & Children", but Black Mirror is more subtle and recognises further-reaching implications than they do.
It should be shown to kids who are maybe too young to fully realise the effects of cyber bullying, for instance. I think it would work great as they would also find it very entertaining, more so than any of the informational programmes I saw as a kid.
