Social Media: Hero or Villain?
In this episode, we are talking to Bloomberg Tech Journalist Sarah Frier, author of No Filter, a deep dive into the origin story of Instagram and its later acquisition by Facebook. Her book was longlisted for getAbstract's International Book Award 2020.

We ask: How have the explosion of social networks and their pervasiveness in our lives shaped our communication, both online and off? What role do algorithms play in igniting creativity, and on the other hand, increasing polarisation? Despite our obsession with likes, shares and engagement, is there any hope that social media could help restore authentic online communication? It all depends on us, the users. But we need to learn how our behavior is influenced, so we can make more independent, and healthy choices.
