Is social media making us antisocial?

‘According to Ofcom’s latest research, the British use smartphones and tablets to access the web more heavily than any of the world’s leading economies. 18-to 24-year-olds in the UK are the world’s top mobile social networkers, with 62% accessing their profiles on the go. So how is all this technology changing the way we relate to each other – has it alienated us or allowed us to be closer?’

In this Radio 4 You and Yours episode the discussion is around whether or not social media has made us better communicators or antisocial. Lots of interesting calls in to the show from the public, including great input from people much older than the usual mobile and social media demographic.
