Just finishing this latest Frontline Episode. At the same time their was a previous Frontline episode (Growing Up Online). Which I also watched as well. Both were interesting. As for me I'm torn on this because I love both worlds.
Dropping facebokk and other social networking sites is a good start. However, the cell phone issue can be a little different. First off, what kind of cell phone are you using? Is it as simple as possible with little to no features? Or is it a fully loaded iPhone or Blackberry, etc? If you have a simple phone for emergency purposes, i would suggest keeping it, however, if you've got the fully loaded one, you should think about simplifying. Back to basics. what's a phone for? Calling. if you use it for more than that, then you are lost in the "digital world" with little hope for survival.
i'm always on my iphone catchiing up on the latest twits from twitter, and checking in on my friends constantly on facebook. It's the best. How else can I keep tabs on everyone and know where they are and what they're doing at any given tiem of day, 24/7.
