While social media is a great tool to promote your business, check in with your friends and even find a new partner for life, we can't forget that haters gonna hate hate hate.

Join us in this informal conversation to learn how to shake off all the haters in your feed.

Takeaways

  • Hear experiences from experts on how to deal with haters
  • Understand how to have a balanced life on social media
  • How to protect your mental health and take care of your wellbeing on social media
  • How to take a break from all the news and negativity online
