Fake News On Facebook And Happiness Without Social Media – The Week's CTRL ALT Delete Segment On CHOM 97.7 FM

Posted by

Every Monday morning at 7:10 am, I am a guest contributor on CHOM 97.7 FM radio broadcasting out of Montreal (home base). It’s not a long segment – about 5 to 10 minutes every week – about everything that is happening in the world of technology and digital media. The good folks at CHOM 97.7 FM are posting these segments weekly on iHeart Radio, if you’re interested in hearing more of me blathering away. I’m really excited about this opportunity, because this is the radio station that I grew up on listening to, and it really is a fun treat to be invited to the Mornings Rock with Terry and Heather B. morning show. The segment is called, CTRL ALT Delete with Mitch Joel.

This week we discussed: 

  • Facebook is being (partly) blamed for President-Elect Donald Trump’s victory. The problem? Fake news. What is this? How big of a problem is it, really? How has Facebook reacted?
  • Maybe we should not be so worried about what Facebook does with fake news. Maybe we should just not be on Facebook? Well, science may say that if you want to be happier, one of the best things that you can do for yourself, is to not be on Facebook
  • App of the week: Open Table.

Take a listen right here.
