    Dialogues #2 “Does social media undermine human relationships?”

    Event Description

    Aldous Huxley famously wrote “Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.” For the second dialogues event of this year, we will be discussing how social media effects social relationships. Is social media leading to social alienation? Is humanity gradually losing the capacity to empathize and relate to eachother as a result of online interactions? On the night, there will be a sign up sheet for anyone who wants to make a two minute submission on the impact of social media. We encourage everyone, no matter their experience, to make a submission. This will be followed by a general conversation. In the mean time, feel free to get the conversation going by posting articles or thoughts on the Facebook page.
