On Friday's Backchat: How have the anti-extradition protests changed Hong Kong? With “Lennon Wall” protest sites springing up all over town, and demonstrations planned in different parts of the New Territories, are we witnessing a change in the political climate? Is Hong Kong society becoming more polarized, as evidenced by the recent clashes between pro and anti-extradition bill protesters in Yau Tong? And what are the implications for November's District Council elections?

On Friday's Backchat, is social media a good thing. After Facebook and other social networking sites suffered one of their worst outages, we ask if they're actually causing more harm than good. Do Instagram, WeChat, Youtube, Snapchat, Twitter, QQ and the rest build communities, champion good causes,connect people from around the world with common interests, educate, inform and entertain at almost no cost? Or do they foster fake news, cyberbullying, stress, addiction, envy, low self-esteem, sleeplessness, tiny attention spans and political manipulation? Are you and the world better or worse off? - And will they still be around in a hundred years time?
After 9.20, launch of youth hostel in Yuen Long - alternative housing for young people.
