Remember the old days when framed pictures of you and your pals sufficed? Long before you met your three filtered Fairy Godmothers – Juno, Mayfair and Clarendon and they each gave you a like? Or the prehistoric times when nattering away on the landline was the equivalent to messenger? (Sorry – Facebook? New phone, who dis?) As far as game-changers go, the social media phenomenon has changed our lives irrevocably, but has it for the better or worse?
Riposte Magazine is hosting a talk delving into this contentious subject on 25th July at Town Hall Hotel. The talk will dig deep into the pleasures and pitfalls of living a life online, how we can navigate around them, and what the future of tech developments hold in store for us all. In a complex world of fake news, heightened activism, trolling and the proliferation of new platforms empowering marginalised communities, this couldn’t be a more relevant discussion to be having right now.
The expert panel of female speakers will comprise of: Clemmie Telford (Blogger & Creative Director), Charlotte Philby (Writer), Ellen Atlanta (WAH Nails’ Communications Manager), Heleana Quartey (Havas London’s Strategist) and will be moderated by Riposte’s Editor Danielle Pender.
