What are the best social media movies? Movies about social media explore how we interact with technology everyday. Whether it's how we connect with friends, how we express ourselves in a myriad of forms, or how we learn about the world, social media movies often feature themes of society's evolution. The best social media movies can often be movies about peer pressure, movies about social anxiety, or movies about online predators. So, what is the best social media movie? What great social media movie really makes you think?

The godfather of social media movies is The Social Network, a biopic about Mark Zuckerberg and the founding of Facebook. Yet the internet and social media has evolved a lot since then, with time and data lending a lot of insight into the effects of social media. Drama movies like Silk Road, Disconnect, The Circle, and Mainstream explore these themes. If you want to watch a social media horror movie, then check out the Unfriended franchise, Searching, or Hard Candy, which explores the dangerous side of online relationships. Then there's The Hater, a Netflix movie about social media and bullying.
