Should we throw social media under the bus? Is it all bad?
We have so many devices, but are there any rules governing the use of data?
The influencing of young people
The status of online child protection in California
Might other US states follow California’s example?
The power of the Like button
Girls are more susceptible to the damaging influence of social media
How do we go about connecting kids in a way that’s helpful for their mental health?
Rick brings up the capitalist element, where the machine is still governed by revenue
ALSO: in the preamble, Rick brings up Peloton’s new (expensive) product, and the company’s recent struggle to hang on to its senior leaders. Peloton is also leaking money, and is sitting on more than a billion dollars’ worth of inventory 🚴♂️
Meanwhile, Shaun has missed out on the big tech headlines because of work demands, but has thoroughly enjoyed using his new air fryer! 🍟
In between, we share tech headlines and some very interesting stats about Instagram.
