Bob Wigley (Online Event)
Born Digital

Thursday, February 25, 2021 19:00 - 20:00

Born Digital, the new book by Mr Wigley, is the story of a distracted generation. It studies the effects of technology on Generation Z - smartphones, gaming, social media, Netflix, VR etc. but also runs this in parallel with societal trends like the new ways in which relationships are formed by youngsters and the nature of those relationships, the decline of the nuclear family, the decline of religion, the decline of marriage, decline of communal eating,  the rise of pansexuality, the loss of conversation, and decline in the number and quality of opportunities to build empathy. The parallel rise in social media exposure and adolescent anxiety, low self-esteem issues, loneliness, self-harm and suicide are examined. Mr Wigley has been working with the head of policy at the NSPCC and a leading academic cyber psychologist to ensure the analysis is technically correct so far as the charities that lobby on adolescent mental wellbeing are concerned.
