Sh farmers to harried parents to Silicon Valley programmers Newport identifies the common practices of digital minimalists and the ideas that underpin them He shows how digital minimalists are rethinking their relationship to social media rediscovering the pleasures of the offline world and reconnecting with their inner selves through regular periods of solitude He then shares strategies for integrating these practices into your life starting with a thirty day digital declutter process that has already helped thousands feel less overwhelmed and in controlTechnology is intrinsically neither good nor bad The key is using it to support your goals and values rather than letting it use you This book shows the way. Every rare once in awhile a Facebook friend announces their imminent departure from Facebook Or simply uietly slips away leaving behind a shadow profile in my friends list I send up a silent cheer when I realize they have deactivated their account knowing in my belly they are better off without this ubiuitous social media overlord For a long time I ve felt a sense of disuiet about social media but the disturbance has become a growing alarm and a deep sadness in recent months I feel that we all of us who are connected have just lost our way Then two things occurred almost simultaneously one horrific one glorious First The New York Times ran a feature on child pornography a hideous crime that s exploded in volume because of social media The wretched creeps who exploit and abuse children have multiple platforms that make it harder to track their behavior and make it all the easier for children to be preyed upon The social media companies like Facebook with its Messenger platform
