The documentary 'Like' examines the negative impacts of social media

According to the educational organization, COMMON SENSE, teenagers communicate more via social media than face to face.

SEATTLE — Social media, while fun, can cause major distractions to today's teens. It disrupts their sleep, shortens attention spans, and keeps students from completing their school work. The documentary "Like" examines all these impacts and the damage caused emotionally, socially and physically by our digital fixation. 

The filmmakers Scilla Andreen and Ian Andreen from IndieFlix join New Day Northwest to talk about the film and the insidious side to social media. 

Catch a screening of "Like" on Thursday, May 16, at the Fusion Academy in Seattle, 214 E. Galer St, Suite 200, starting at 5:30 p.m. The screening is free to attend, though RSVPs are required. 

Watch New Day Northwest 11:00 weekdays on KING-TV Ch.5 or streaming live on KING5.com. Connect with New Day via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
