The negative effects of social media on our mental health

In a world where we are hyper connected with everything, we could not feel so disconnected with reality.

Social media has its benefits. It allows us to catch up with friends, promote our business and learn of events in our community.

Unfortunately, many of us are consumed with likes, follows, comments and subscribers. We interpret those numbers to be a direct reflection as to WHO we are.

Do more likes and followers mean you are more worthy? If few engage in a post does it lose value in what that experience or information means to you? 

 

We are joined by media commentator, family caregiving expert Stephanie Erickson who expressed the effects of social media on her life and career in a video series titled Chasing likes and Follows.
