Social Media and Friendships Live Conversation with Rosalind Wiseman & Rachel Simmons

September 5, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

How has social media changed the dynamic of girls’ friendships?

Social media changed girls’ lives by taking things that used to be private and intangible — like what your classmates were doing after school and how many friends someone had — and making them public and tangible.

Now you can see what everyone is up to, where they go on vacation, what they eat, and what they buy. Now you can see who loves who through tagging and streaks. Now you can compare your numbers to someone else’s.

Most harmful of all, you can see only the most perfect version of someone’s life, leading many to think that their own struggles are unusual or wrong.

 It doesn’t have to be this way.

Join New York Times bestselling authors Rachel Simmons and Rosalind Wiseman for a live conversation on the impact of social media on girls’ friendships and identity.

P.S. Bring your questions! We’ll open up for a brief Q&A at the end of the call.

See you there!
