Join us for The Dark Side of Social Media – A Consumer Psychology Perspective (Webinar) on Thursday, April 15 at 1 PM.

When researchers have applaud social media as a great marketing and personal communications tool, it’s easy to forget that social media has its downfalls, most notably the impact on our emotional and intellectual wellbeing. And it’s even more rare that we hear about the darkest side of social media, the side that can bring “digital drama” at best and health and wellbeing concerns at worst. Join Clemson University’s Dr. Angeline Close Scheinbaum, a consumer psychologist and branding expert, to learn how social media has impacted the wellbeing of people and brands alike. In this virtual program, Dr. Scheinbaum will discuss key themes and solutions for consumer wellbeing from her edited book “The Dark Side of Social Media: A Consumer Psychology Perspective.”

This program is presented by Dr. Angeline Close Scheinbaum and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
