Taking Social Connections Offline with Marie Nadal Sharma
By Ling Ling
Human beings are social creatures. According to Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens, we have climbed rapidly to the top of the food chain because of our ability to communicate and cooperate. In the past decade, our attention has shifted from our physical space to our screens. It's common to see people at dinners or dates quietly tapping away at their mobile devices. Or families retreating to their devices and scroll endlessly at social media feed. Are we no longer as social as before? In recent years, social media has suffered setbacks because of data breaches and fake content. There is a growing anti-social media movement where people opt to disable or delete their accounts entirely. For many, this is not an option. Many rely heavily on social media for work or business. Is there a better way of reaping the benefits of social media, without being enslaved by it? Joining us is Marie Nadal Sharma, the founder and director of Them You and Me, a digital marketing agency guiding businesses through digital transformation. She strives to demystify digital marketing and uses friendly words to explain technology and all things digital.
