While society has widely condemned the effects on preteens and teens' natural social maturation of digitally enabled communication, such as texting and messaging, and of social media apps, such as Facebook, Instagram, and SnapChat, these forms of communication are adversely affecting everyone, including adults. This book examines how social media and modern communication methods are isolating users socially, jeopardizing their intellectual habits, and, as a result, decreasing their chances of achieving social and professional success.
Focuses on the effects of the Internet and social media overall on the specific groups most affected: tweens, teens, and college students, individuals who take to the use of such modern communication methods naturally but who are also ill-equipped to use self-control to resist the instant gratification, constant distraction, and addictive behaviors that come with social media
Alerts readers to consequences of social media and Internet use of which they are likely unaware
Identifies practical solutions that can serve to counter the wide-reaching negative effects of excessive use of and reliance on social media
