In our technological world there is no real escape from the pressures of social media. I was recently asked by Gemma Thorne (Twitter @gemmathorne_) for my thoughts on the way that social media impacts young people, in particular image based social media sites and they way this impacts on the overall wellbeing of people. I also commented on how we can protect ourselves from the potential ramifications of spending our time online and being exposed to the pressures of being “perfect”.
Below is the link to the podcast Gemma recorded, including interviews with consumers of social media, as well as my opinions. At the bottom of this page is also my full audio recording and thoughts on the topic.
