Social Media Age and Cyber-bullying: In the movie, director Levan Gabriadze presents the audience with an unseen antagonist. This character enters tBlaire and her friends’ screens and cannot be dismissed in any way and becomes an all-knowing presence, just like the existence of Internet itself in current social media age. The internet is an ocean of personal information stored in various locations. This invisible antagonist is gradually playing on Blaire and her friends using social media tools from the social media age society. These applications included the likes of YouTube and Skype, and shattered friendships by compiling their sins. This collection consisted of incriminating videos, messages, and other actions on the Internet . As a result, Unfriended exposes the duality of modern social media age. The power of an interconnected social network helps people more easily keep in touch through a variety if online communities. However, it also enables a dedicated bully to torment his/her victim at anytime. This con is the reason why Blaire and her friends were revealed to have all played some part in Laura’s death. This was done by either uploading the video, commenting with disturbing words, or joining the bullying rather than refusing to get involved and publicly stand up for her. The movie’s most painful scene is not those in which include screaming or violent deaths. Instead, it is the final humiliating video that leads to Laura’s death. Unfriended seems to present us with the bad consequence of cyber-bullying, but also shows that the phenomenon is mundane in this social media age. This is due to the fact that this event could have happened to anybody just by uploading a disturbing and/or humiliating video .
