SFU City Conversations: Not-So-Social Media – July 19

Facebook, Google, and Twitter may be central to how we communicate with others, but these powerful tools come with an expensive, hidden cost.

The more time you spend on the platform, the more money they make. How do they keep your eyeballs glued to the screen? And how is this affecting our culture?

Next Thursday, SFU City Conversations presents Dr. Sarah Ganter, Assistant Professor of Communications at SFU and others, to explain how social media really works, and what other countries are doing about it.

Thursday, July 19
12:30 – 1:30 pm
Simon Fraser University, Harbour Centre – Room 7000
