A public talk on the effect of social media on our social circles

Social media from Facebook to WhatsApp have revolutionised our social lives in less than a decade. Yet, claims to the contrary notwithstanding, they haven’t in fact increased the size of our social circles.

This is a FREE event, no booking required.
