Shreya Garg '20 and Jocelyn Swift '22 recently participated in a panel discussion as part of the Common Ground Speaker Series. The event, attended by more than 400 people, included a screening of LIKE: A Documentary About the Impact of Social Media on Our Lives, followed by a moderated discussion.
LIKE is an IndieFlix Original documentary that explores the impact of social media on our lives. Technology is a tool. It’s here to stay and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care, but what’s really happening? Are we addicted? How do we stop? Where do we start? What do we need to know? By understanding the effects of technology and social media on the brain, on our lives and on our civilization, we can learn how to navigate it more safely together.
According to the film's producers, the "goal of the film is to inspire people of all ages, especially kids, to self regulate. It’s not about blame. It’s about looking in the mirror and empowering ourselves to create balance in our lives and to learn to be there for each other." You can read more about the film on their website, here.
