Digital Desires #7: Blue Ticks

Anxiety, jealousy and suspicions are just three of the many emotions caused by blue ticks, the double check symbol on Whatsapp denoting that your message was seen by its intended recipient. On this episode of Digital Desires, a show exploring how identity, trust, love, sex, friendships, relationships and belonging are being challenged and redefined in the age of screens and social media, BFM Night School’s Ahmad Fuad Rahmat and clinical psychologist Vizla Kumaresan examine how read receipts serve corporate interests while provoking our deepest insecurities.

Produced by: Chua Ern Teck
