Sensemaker Live: Can’t we just ditch social media and get along?


We know what we’re doing: surrendering our mental health for a firehose of low-value information on what friends are wearing, what they think of us and what they look like when they try to dance. It’s a terrible trade-off, and – as we tend to forget – it’s voluntary. So why not just scrap the apps and use the phone for talking, or not getting lost?

We are introducing a new booking system that will make it easier than ever for you to join our ThinkIns.  

If you have any questions or get stuck, please get in touch with us at memberhelp@tortoisemedia.com.
