In this video I will be talking about social media overwhelm. I will define the term sensory overload and relate to Goffman’s theory on theatrical performativity to give an understanding of what it is exactly that is causing us to feel overwhelmed. Furtermore I have listed some tips on how to deal with feeling overstimulated in today’s digital world.
I hope you enjoy watching my video. Feel free to leave a comment!
