Learn How Social Media Actually Affects Well-Being at #SMWLDN



The University of Oxford Psychologist joins the #SMWLDN speaker lineup.

Social Media Week London 2018 is on the horizon, and we thought this week would be a good time to highlight a new session that we’re incredibly excited about.


We all have preconceived notions about the effect social media has on our well-being. We’ve read articles, excerpts, and—let’s face it—sometimes just headlines that have shaped our understanding of the effects, good and bad, that social media have on us.

The truth, however, is more complicated. Much of what is presented as “statistically significant” is often anything but, and that often affects popular opinion—especially regarding a tool like social media that so many of us know and love.

That’s why “Social Media and Well-Being: Rethinking the Scientific Evidence,” presented by Oxford University and featuring lecturer and psychologist Amy Orben, is expected to be one of the most thought-provoking and impactful sessions of Social Media Week.

Amy will give attendees a better understanding of the research surrounding the relationship between social media and human sociality and well-being, debunking myths and exposing new mysteries along the way.
