  • IRL: Improving Communities with Social Media

    by Matthew Edwards, Kelly Weiss, Shelly Brisbin and Gretchen Rubin

    A recent survey of 17,000 people found that 60% of Americans believe that neighbors are worse today than they were 15 years ago. What role does social media play in this perception of decline? We’ll have perspectives from State Farm, which commissioned the large scale survey across all 50 states; Kelly Weiss, Executive Director of Austin Habitat for Humanity; and Gretchen Rubin, an author whose research has focused on the question of how connectedness affects our happiness – including how ties with neighbors and communities have an impact on our overall wellbeing.

    At 9:30am to 10:30am, Tuesday 13th March

    In Longhorn, Omni Downtown
