What's it about?

Social media helps us stay in touch with loved ones, current events, and trends. So what's there to be worried about? Unfortunately, it's also making our self esteem take some major hits, and and increasing our feelings of inadequacy. For children and teens, this can have a bigger effect. This collection pulls together Blinks and Shortcast episodes that delve into the influence social media has on our minds, and the hows and whys of preventing their negative effects on our brains and personalities.
