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.
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.
