An empowering, forward-thinking solution for creating intentional and healthy social media habits from an expert on media, technology and health.

Former Dean of the Honors College at the University of Pittsburgh and Endowed Chair in Patient Care at the University’s School of Medicine, internationally acclaimed behavioral scientist and social media expert Dr. Brian Primack believes we do not need to swear off social media, delete all our online accounts, or give up our phones to live healthier, happier lives. In You Are What You Click, he offers a new approach to digital wellness, and a realist’s perspective on how what we consume online affects our well-being.

While many of us turn to social media looking for a sense of connection and comfort, the data show that it may paradoxically leave us feeling more alone and depressed. Drawing on over twenty years of original research, Dr. Primack explains the fascinating nuances of our relationship with social media, its impact on our mental health, and the dangers of social media using us instead of the other way around. He empowers us to take back control with a simple method: being more selective, positive, and creative with our lives online.
