How to Live With the Internet and Not Let It Run Your Life
Written by Gabrielle Alexa Noel
This book is a guide to living your life online, offering practical and sanity-saving tips to help you block out distractions and detractors.
It's happened to most of us. One day we're humbly using our desktop computer to send emails and gawk at kittens on YouTube, and then, the next day, we're suddenly addicted to the pocket-buzz of notifications. Hateful DMs on Twitter, live videos on Instagram, emails from seven different accounts, and half-hearted flirtations from Tinder. Our digitally-driven lives aren't just ruining our eyesight, they're causing us to burn out and disengage with our lives offline.
This book is here to help you take control of your online life, without ever pretending or suggesting for a moment that you should quit memes entirely. Enjoy quick tips and tricks - such as never, ever, EVER, reading the comments beneath your publicly posted content - as well as laugh-and-cry-out-loud stories from the social media frontlines.
Take the power back, and start once again to use the internet as it was intended - to access endless knowledge and to disseminate pictures of cats.
