Over the last decade, 24/7 connectivity has given us not only convenience and fun but worries about privacy, interruptions while working or trying to enjoy family or other downtime, and new compulsions - from shopping to tweeting and cute cat watching. One of the authors who brought healthy boundary setting to a mass audience has now written a book on how to do this with technology.
The first of its kind, this resource doesn't suggest anyone go "cold turkey." Instead it helps people make social media, smart phones, and other technological distractions work for, rather than against, them. Readers learn to protect themselves online in every way - from predators and data mining to time-devouring friends and acquaintances - with an emphasis on preserving and optimizing meaningful personal connectivity. Anyone who has ever wondered if their cute little gadget was actually an enemy invader welcomes Katherine's strategies for ensuring "that your life is truly your own."
