I'm rather intrigued by Catfish, the TV show. Yes, I've read the critics that the show has been edited. No doubt, they take unlimited footage and need to edit it for the time frame. Catfishing comes from the seafood industry practice of shipping codfish stacked alternately with catfish. Stacking codfish on top of each other would turn the texture of the codfish into mush. So ,the connotation developed into representing oneself as an alternate identity ( especially online). I am specifically impressed by the tactics the two documentarists (Nev and Max) use to track down people behind the professed identity on Social Media. I do not communicate with anyone on Social Media that I don't already know. I only opened a FB account when I had a book signing, and eventually tapered off the main "Status" update, and communicate only with my family members by PM (inboxing). I chose not to put this subject on TV, etc, b/c it is publicly visible, and I do not want to be in a conversation with someone I don't know. So, it might seem ironic that I have joined this forum,at all, but I believe all members here are really my Brothers and Sisters and that the moderators do an excellent job of screening. I especially appreciate when brothers and sisters post their own pic. What is your take on Catfish, the TV Show? Am I being reeled in?
