Did you know that the average young European has an average screen time of 7 hours a day?📱
In this episode of the Wunderparlament Podcast, the youth reporters Finn and Robert have the chance to talk with the dutch European parliament member Kim van Sparrentak about the addictive design of social media platforms.
Her expertise on this topic is based on the report to the European parliament that she wrote in late 2023.
We take an in-depth look into certain aspects of the report, such as the “right not to be disturbed.” It is a function that allows you to turn off methods that are designed by social media platforms to draw your attention.
The Podcast also gives an impression why young people are especially concerned by social media addiction, hinting at the high average screen time.
This episode offers insights in Kims fight against social media addiction as well as tricks that you can apply to reduce your personal screen time.
But don´t forget that: “No self-discipline can beat Big Tech’s tricks, fuelled by armies of designers and psychologists to keep you glued to your screen.”
Thank you Kim for the Interview and everybody for lending us an ear!🧏
