In the Seattle Times there is thought provoking opinion article by Ricardo Gomez and Stacey Morrison. Guest: The growing movement to break technology addiction. Here they speak about a growing number of people who are pushing back and dropping out of social media and other technological forms of communication. This is neither an anti-technology nor an anti-social behavior. It’s about technology users seeking balance in their lives, regaining control over their use of technology and wanting to re-establish more authentic connections with others.
Furthermore, the article describes people who are pushing back into three categories.
· Tech Addicts
· Tech Discontents
· Tech Hipsters
If you are interested to know what category tech user you are then read the full article. I found it to be very interesting and thought provoking.
