In today's show, I chat with Social Media expert Johanna Renoth. As she is currently doing her PhD on Instagram, we focus on the good, bad and ugly of this platform and discuss how we as individuals should try to improve our relationship with it.
In this far-reaching and fascinating chat, we cover many topics, including the evolution of social media, the algorithm, influencers' personal branding, dating, mental health, technology, attention, tribalism, politics, culture, society and we discuss various ways to make sure social media works for you, not against you.
