Social media is an awesome tool when used properly, but oftentimes we let this inanimate object wreak havoc on our lives. In today’s episode, we are diving into social media -- the good, the bad, the ugly. First, Zuri chats with expert Dr. Mai-Ly Nguyen Steers, about the effect of social media on our lives and how we can properly use social media as a healthy tool so that we can enjoy it. Next, Zuri chats with her real-life friends, in a HHM signature segment -- The Group Chat -- where the girls talk all things social -- from feeling 107 years old on Tik Tok, to sliding into the DMS; Cleo going viral over her Seeking Entanglement tweet (lmao); sharing your kids on social, and more!


  • Dr. Mai-Ly Nguyen Steers is an assistant professor in the School of Nursing at Duquesne University and an applied social psychologist. She brings passion and commitment to health-related research. And has authored articles on the effects social media has on our lives.
