Today, we can share any detail about our lives with just the tap of a button. We can take a look into the lives of people near and far, and decide if it’s something we want to like, share, or comment on. Social media has made it much easier to connect with others. But in some cases, it can make us disconnect with reality. “Hooked” takes a look at what happens when social media slowly takes over our lives and becomes something we can’t seem to take our eyes off of. It’s an extreme example of the impact everyday applications can have on young people’s mental health.
