(Dis)connected: How to Stay Human in an Online World (Hardback)Emma Gannon (author)
- 10+ in stock
The bestselling author of Ctrl, Alt; Delete: How I Grew Up Online examines the dangers of living life through social media and why so many people are choosing to log off in this prescient and highly entertaining volume.
Millennials might have grown up online but now they want to log off. And it's not just millennials. A year of lockdowns, Zoom meetings and reduced physical contact has made us more dependent on the internet than ever before - but has it lost its humanity?
Our focus on community and real connection has been sent off-course and we're becoming more aware of how the algorithm manipulates us and how our data has made us a product to be sold. So, where do we go from here and how can we get back on track? (Dis)connected examines these topics and offers tangible tips and advice for those of us who might feel a little lost right now and want to find themselves again.
