VIA’s Vreemde Vriende takes a dive into connecting with your social media friends
Some of us aren’t as eager to meet new people, but Vreemde Vriende, Du Preez Strauss, shows us how! Watch it on DStv.
Imagine you could meet some of the friends you have on Facebook. That’s exactly what Du Preez Strauss (41) does in the fascinating series, Vreemde Vriende, which is back for a 13-episode third season on VIA (147).
In every episode, Du Preez, who has amassed a massive number of Facebook friends (5 000 – the maximum number the platform currently allows for a personal account), picks one to visit, profile and get to know in real life. Off the beaten track, Du Preez shows us the wonderful and widely diverse South Africans and their interesting and not-often-seen lifestyles and peculiar hobbies.
From some famous friends to seemingly ordinary, yet utterly extraordinary people, Du Preez goes behind the façade of Facebook posts and glossy photos to find out “if what you post is really what you live”, as he steps into their world. And the best part… his friends welcomes him with open arms.
