TEDxGreensboro Salon

April 29, 7pm on Zoom

What We Misunderstand About Misinformation

Social Media plays a critical role in the way people receive, process, and disseminate information. It is irretrievably harmful to share information that is false or misleading. When we like and share information, we are essentially creating social media itself. We all have a responsibility to ensure that we don’t accept everything we see on Social Media at face value. What is our obligation as consumers and creators of Social Media?

There is no charge for the salon, but pre-registration is required. After registering, you will receive your Zoom link.

TEDxGreensboro Salon Series

TEDxGreensboro Salon events are smaller events that keep a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events. It’s unique because you, the participants, are involved in the conversation. We will share TED Talks plus local speakers to build a dialogue with you – the audience. There will be questions, thoughts and ideas and we will all wrestle with what it all means. Enrollment is limited – come to mix and mingle with other TEDx’ers and to talk about ideas.
