I recently spoke to a student who is also doing this course who is outside of my class. I expressed my slight confusion over the use of social media and flash mobs, but he explained to me that perhaps the purpose of this class is to really go in depth with the idea of an interactive documentary, that it is kind of the result of thinking about what could come next. How do we further the use of social media and how do we have more reach? The idea that the interactive documentary can involve so many people is an interesting concept where many can contribute and where it is possible to make a social change, whether it may be serious and political or fun and lighthearted. The reach of social media is also relative to the fact that there are so many platforms in existence that perform so many different and unique functions that more and more people are able to interact and create content that is made available to others.
