"I originally set out to make a documentary to explore the positive benefits of control or diminished use. What I actually uncovered was something far far darker" - Richard Grannon
Plugged In explores how social media and smart phone usage has an effect on our younger generations, those who are now born into a world technologically ready and know nothing else - and how hard it is to remove this element from their lives in these modern times. It looks into the design of social media being a purposeful tool used to keep people hooked in, taken away from face to face reactions and how the attitudes towards people through these mediums have become darker.
This topic is one that is very relevant and asks the question of what will happen if we continue to increase the use of social media, the effect this will have on our interactions from person to person and the nature of lifestyles in the future. It also asks if these forms if media were moderated and limited how peoples lives would change ...
This is a well thought out wake up call asking society to consider the implications of the effects of unbridled social media use in children and young people. All this technology is so new that it's unclear on what the long term effects on the human psyche will have, but the prognosis is not good so far.
