11 Social Media

Social media has turned the world upside down, for better or worse. In this first episode of Season 2, Boonie & Rachel tackle the ideas of friendship, human connection, and the need to be seen.

 

Quotes

“In a way, social media has almost become the air that we breathe.”

“What’s the difference between having a flesh-and-blood friend and a robot friend?”

“(Society wants) to make robots more human instead of making humans more human.”

“It’s a double-edged sword to be on social media… How vulnerable can I be? How real can I be? How authentic can I be? But then I also have to be sensational.”

“Whether or not you get 50 likes … or two or none, you are valuable, and what you think is important.”
