Yle podcast: All Points North

Researcher Kateryna Golovina was interviewed for the Yle podcast All Points North about how social media is impacting family size in Finland.

“It was indeed shown for Finland that those people who spend a lot of time on social media, they have lower relationship satisfaction, which might also be related to child bearing,” said Kateryna Golovina from the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies and Netresilience consortium.
