Local Forum: ' Isolationism in a Connected World.', Jan. 26th at Florey's!

Florey's welcomes you to our discussion group!

***Thursday, January 26th, 7:00pm-8:30pm***

We will be meeting to discuss the topic: Isolationism in a Connected World.

From Nico:

There are a lot of talking points for this discussion, it is almost overwhelming. But here are some ideas to consider, as well as a video link to get the thought process started:
-Is there anything to gain by not being on social media?
-Can one use social media and not have it substantially influence their real world?
-How has social media affected human relationships?
-Is isolating oneself from society really that helpful?
Here is a Ted Talk video called Alone Together by Sherry Turkle.
I recommend reading her book as well, but this video covers a lot of good points.

We hope to see you!
