LIKE – A Documentary about the Impact of Social Media on Our Lives

Technology is a tool.  But are we addicted ?  How do we stop ? Where do we start ?
The goal for this film is to inspire people of all ages, especially kids, to self regulate.  As technology continues to progress and children are exposed at even earlier ages, education and discussion are critical to understanding how it affects us and how we can manage it going forward.
Tuesday, April 30th 7-9pm
Frelinghuysen Middle School Auditorium
A discussion will immediately follow the film.  More information can be found on the attached flyer.
