    In this film, author and Frontline correspondent Douglas Rushkoff explores how the perennial teen quest for identity and connection has migrated to social media - and exposes the game of cat-and-mouse that corporations are playing with these young consumers. Do kids think they're being used? Do they care? Or does the perceived chance to be the next big star make it all worth it? The film is an examination of the evolving and complicated relationship between teens and the companies that are increasingly working to target them.
