EEC 126: What Are the Dangers of Social Media?

Ali Shah comes from a technology background and has started five companies, but he experienced a transformational journey in South America that took him to where he is today. He realized when we personally connect with others, we improve our mental health, feel a sense of belonging, and strengthen our relationships.

Texting, posting memes/links, sharing filtered images does not bring us closer as human beings, nor does it allow us to meaningfully connect with each other.
