#Oversharers is a pilot TV show produced by MA students at Birmingham City University. The show aims to explore the dangers posed by seemingly innocent (if a little childish!) oversharing on social media networks using real-life examples.
The pilot show is set in the city of Birmingham where local prankster Ryan has been sharing a little too much information on his social profiles. Ryan is met by the show’s resident social media expert, Jodie Cook, who interviews him about his online oversharing habits and how he could potentially be putting himself at risk. Check it out:
The show touches on the many aspects of social media that impact society today. Many of the issues Ryan faces are typical of those we all experience from time to time.
