Cate also looks at the latest trend in adult videos - Face swapping. Someone has used the face swapping ability of apps like snapchat to take celebrities faces and convincingly map them onto porn stars bodies.  The technique is known as "deepfakes" and had led to a variety of women's faces appearing in pornographic video's that they did not participate in. 

And finally, Cate looks at the idea of  "social ranking" in our society. Although the idea may have appeared in Black Mirror, it may become a reality.
