In this unmissable conversation Jaron Lanier, one of the most celebrated pioneers of digital innovation in the world, who first alerted us to the dangers of social media, will draw on his insider’s expertise to explain precisely how social media works – by deploying constant surveillance and subconscious manipulation of its users – and why its cruel and dangerous effects are at the heart of its current business model and design.
Offering ten simple arguments for liberating ourselves from its addictive hold, Jaron Lanier will also outline a vision for an alternative that provides all the benefits of social media without the harm.
