4: ...Don't Let Social Media Ruin Your Life. (Here's How!)

Updated: Jan 18, 2021

Social media is an awesome tool when used properly, but oftentimes we let this inanimate object wreak havoc on our lives. In today’s episode, we are diving into social media -- the good, the bad, the ugly.

  • First, Zuri chats with expert Dr. Mai-Ly Nguyen Steers, about the effect of social media on our lives and how we can properly use social media as a healthy tool so that we can enjoy it.

  • Next, Zuri chats with her real-life friends, in a HHM signature segment -- The Group Chat -- where the girls talk all things social -- from feeling 107 years old on Tik Tok, to sliding into the DMS; Cleo going viral over her Seeking Entanglement tweet (lmao); sharing your kids on social, and more!


Dr. Mai-Ly N. Steers is an assistant professor in the School of Nursing at Duquesne University and an applied social psychologist. She brings passion and commitment to health-related research. And has authored articles on the effects social media has on our lives. Check out Dr. Steer's column on Psychology Today called "Whats Psych Got to Do with it?" + Twitter
