Social media has become an increasingly significant factor in our daily lives. Not all of what is available on the internet is bad, but learning to manage it and filter out the noise is a difficult task for adults and nearly impossible for teens. On the next Line One, Prentiss Pemberton discusses the traps and pitfalls of social media and how we can consume it in a way that does not harm our health.
