Many of today's youth are basing their self-worth and happiness on the number of responses to their social media posts.Canada's social media expert and award winning speaker and author, Wade Sorochan, provides an informative and humorous presentation on the rise of Social Media Addiction causing an anxiety inducing fixation for "LIKES," FOLLOWERS" and "COMMENTS." Studies now show that social media can make you feel sad, anxious and depressed; social media is training us to compare our lives to others instead of appreciating our own lives. Addiction to social media is equated to an addiction to heroin. Wade believes social media is one of the biggest threats to mental health today. Young people today are experiencing higher levels of anxiety than ever before. Wade shares the latest information on the effects of social media on mental health with expert tips on how to recognize symptoms before it turns into an addiction and causes mental health issues. Based on his groundbreaking book.
