Social media is known for its benefits in creating and maintaining connections. It’s also designed to provide us with information—often too conveniently—in just one click. Because of this, it’s only natural that we keep on using it, without realizing we’re glued to our screens longer than we ought – or want –  to be.

In this episode, Dr. James Thambyrajah joins us to talk about social media’s subtle yet profound effect on our daily lives. We discuss the perils of being unaware of how our online decisions are influenced and James shares his insights on how we can improve how we stay informed and inform others.

Tune in to this episode if you want to learn more about how to go beyond your digital echo chamber.
