Social media dominance: At what cost


On this episode of The Cost of Everything we take a closer look at the economic and mental costs of social media. Like any business there are winners and losers; host Christy Ai explores how social media companies' revenues go hand in hand with the amount of time users spend on the apps. Tech Editor Tekendra Parmar explores privacy and productivity issues faced by social media consumers while professor Pavica Sheldon discusses how the world would be more advanced if the ‘best and brightest’ hadn’t become employees of social media companies.
