“Like” – A Documentary About the Impact of Social Media On our Lives
This 49-minute documentary aims to show our phone-addicted teens and selves how social media affects our actions, self-perception, and feelings. Hear both experts and teens discuss the feeling of letting a friend down if they stop a chat, how beautiful yet edited photos of others make us feel inferior, and the fear of missing out if we aren’t connected. Hear teens describe how their phones impact their lives from the moment they wake to just before they fall asleep. “The thing that I think is most important for teenagers and young people to understand is these devices are not designed for you in many ways; that you are not the customer. You are the product being sold here and are you really using technology or is technology using you?” – Max Stossel
