Navigating Information Fatigue: Social Media Two-Part Series

May 13, 2021 - May 20, 2021 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Virtual Event by Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

The COVID-19 pandemic has further increased our reliance on social media and the Internet for information. This development, combined with underlying political partisanship, has created a breeding ground for disinformation, conspiracy theories, and information overload. Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has long provided resources for the best-quality information in the service of the public in Pittsburgh and beyond.

Join the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh for a two-part series on the ways in which social media has contributed to information fatigue, and what we can do to take back control over our digital lives. Our presenter will share resources and offer guidance on the subtle effects social media has on our lives, how our reliance on it influences society, and how we can be more conscientious users of this technology.

  • May 13, 2021: Social Media and Society
  • May 20, 2021: Social Media and Me (Addiction by Design)

In addition to the two-part series, we will also be providing registered participants virtual access to the 2020 documentary, The Social Dilemma, which will be incorporated into the webinar discussions.
