The University of Hartford is hosting a panel discussion about the concerns and challenges of social media on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 6:30 p.m. in the Konover Campus Center Great Room, 200 Bloomfield Avenue, West Hartford, Conn. (campus map). Admission is free and open to the public.
Titled “Social Media Is Breaking. How Can We Fix It?” the discussion will cover topics like what is the possible adverse impact social media can have on mental health, issues around the spreading of misinformation, privacy concerns, online incivility, and tech “addiction.”
The discussion will dig into the tension between the business interests of Silicon Valley—eyeballs and engagement—with the human interest of users—trustworthy information and increasing happiness. The event also will allow for ample time for audience questions and debate.
