The American Enterprise Debates
The End of Friendship: Do Social Media Destroy Human Relationships?

Online registration for this event is closed. Walk-in registrations may be accepted.

If you cannot attend, we welcome you to watch the event live on this page.

At our next American Enterprise Debate, philosopher and AEI scholar Roger Scruton will make the case that new forms of social media like Facebook and Twitter are doing fundamental damage to the way humans relate to each other and to the social and cultural benefits provided by face-to-face interaction. Tyler Cowen, economist and author of the blog Marginal Revolution, will counter that social media are enhancing human relationships and making us smarter. Adam Keiper, editor of the New Atlantis, will moderate the debate.

Follow the conversation and give us your feedback on Twitter by using our #AEIDebates hashtag and on AEI's Facebook page.
