Back Row | Week 143 | The Social Media Struggle


About This Episode

Social Media has been a blessing in many ways – from allowing us to be closer to distant relatives and friends to organizing important causes worldwide – but more and more often, we are seeing cracks in the system that make us wonder if we should take a step back.

In this Rewind special, we’re pulling out four classic discussions that made us question how much of ourselves we should pour into social media.
