LIKE explores the impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. Understanding that virtual connection is not going away and has many benefits. Its goal is to inform, educate and inspire people of all ages to self-regulate, so they can enjoy balanced and fulfilled lives.
More hopeful in tone than ‘The Social Dilemma’, LIKE weaves in the stories and reflections of teenagers, and the perspectives of both brain scientists and Silicon Valley creators, who explain how our online behavior is affected by algorithms, from being compelled to respond to notifications, to manipulating ourselves to gain more ‘likes’. It introduces JOMO - the Joy Of Missing Out, along with simple tips for taking back control over our devices and our free time.
Featuring panelist, film narrator and former social media strategist Max Stossel. Moderated by Producer, Scilla Andreen.
