Join us for a screening of the compelling new documentary LIKE. More than 2 billion people have smartphones today. And we check our phones on average an incredible 150 times every day. Technology makes our lives easier in so many ways - but what is the cost of our dependence, and our children’s reliance, on screens? LIKE reveals the true effects of technology on the brain and uncovers the impact social media can have on our lives. The film’s mission is to educate, inform and inspire people to effectively self-regulate their screen time. The LIKE screening will be followed by an informative panel discussion featuring local experts.

WHO: The event is free and open to the South Lakes HS community. We highly recommend teens and tweens, parents, educators, and prominent community members attend. When social media users chase "likes" or seek followers, they lose sight of the fact that their devices are now using them. The goal of the screening is to raise awareness about the hidden costs of social media as well as start a conversation about how to ensure our own, and our children’s, healthy use of technology.

ABOUT LIKE: A new documentary exploring the impact of social media on our lives, LIKE's mission is to inspire, inform and help equip all of us to effectively self-regulate screen time. Social media is a tool and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care… but is that what’s really happening? The film features interviews with experts including Max Stossel, Head of Education & Content at Center for Humane Technology; Leah Pearlman, Co-Creator of the Facebook “Like” button; Dr. Jerry Bubrick, Senior Psychologist at Child Mind Institute; Professor Jevin West, DataLab, iSchool, University of Washington; John Borthwick, CEO, Betaworks; and Professor Katie Davis, author of The App Generation.
