"Black Mirror" Is Even Scarier When It's About You

The Vine series Black Mirror IRL delves into the terrifying ways technology transforms us every day. From accidentally swiping left, to sharing your HBO GO password.

Last year, Black Mirror became Netflix's surprise hit, spreading across the United States like a computer virus and revealing what British audiences already knew — that the addictive satire about modern life and technology was our new favorite binge show.

But does it truly affect our daily lives? Modern technology is creeping into our humanity in all kinds of subtle ways — every second of every day. What if Black Mirror reflected the horrifying ways technology is actually ruining our lives?
