Hi. My name is Cathy, and I'm addicted to social media. I mean, I'm empowered by it. Oh wait, it's both. Truth is that the sword of these technology platforms and applications very much cuts both ways and the very things that are changing our world for the better, engaging and empowering people of all kinds, also can be the very knife to rend the social fabric of our society. Okay, maybe that's a touch extreme, but social media addition is a very real phenomenon. On today's episode, Cathy is joined by a trio of guests, each of whom addresses an angle on these topics. Alec Howe of BreakingTrends.com will talk about their just launched research project into how social media is impacting our world. Andrew Eisner of Retrevo will share his company's latest report that examines social media addiction. Finally Nadia Tareen of Girls Learn International joins the program to share the learnings from her ongoing video series (part 2 of 4 recently released) that highlights the rise of social media and the role that young women are playing in that growth.
