About this event

This interactive workshop is for adults, teens and tweens who want to explore how social media is designed to manipulate us and what we can do about it. We will be watching clips from the popular movie ""The Social Dilemma"" (available on Netflix) and discussing the movie's highlights. Learn what you need to know about YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, TikTok and other apps designed to keep us on screens for as long as possible. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to lead an open conversation about social media manipulation with your family and reduce exposure to the negative side of social media. (75 minute interactive workshop)

 

**No need to see the movie before attending the workshop. We will watch clips from the movie together.

 

From ""The Social Dilemma"" website: ""Discover what’s hiding on the other side of your screen. We tweet, we like, and we share— but what are the consequences of our growing dependence on social media? This documentary-drama hybrid reveals how social media is reprogramming civilization with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations.""
