Six (6) Books on the Effect of Technology & Social Media

Technology has overwhelmed our daily lives to the point of constant distraction. Many of us can no longer focus on a single task or face-to-face conversation without wanting to reach out — or retreat — to the virtual world every few minutes. At the peak of my addiction to social media, keeping my discipline to write an article a day for my blog was very difficult. But with the helped of these books (and more) I've come to understand why and how to overcome my constant dependency on technology Now my problem is I have too many ideas and materials to write!

If you want to explore why, how and what makes technology and social media so addictive and to better take control of your life rather than be controlled by these tools, I recommend reading these books:
The Church of Facebook: How the Hyperconnected Are Redefining Community (2009) by Jesse Rice
