Full Product Description

Three days. No Facebook. No Twitter. No social media. Just time to detox, discern, and decide.

Take a three-day social media fast with Unfriend Yourself and learn to examine your use of social media from a Christian perspective. This book will guide you in evaluating your fast by asking challenging questions such as:

    What happens when I broadcast myself on the Internet?
    Do I see a difference between my interactions on social media and my interactions face-to-face?
    Do I rule my media, or do my media rule me?

While reading Unfriend Yourself, you will learn to think critically, biblically, and practically about social media. Whether you choose to leave the social media scene, engage in it less, or engage in it more after your social media fast, your perspective on social media will never be the same.

Q:

Hi - having just looked at your blurb for this book, I wanted to point out to you that it comes across really badly!  The bit I'm referring to is:  "Don't worry, the world can wait; your friends won't even know you're gone seriously, there are over half a billion of them out there. I doubt you'll be missed."

Is this a quote from the book?  It's certainly put me off buying it.  It shows a complete misunderstanding of why young people connect.  To say that their friends won't even know you're gone is damaging to a young person's identity and value.  Saying 'I doubt you'll be missed' is also a complete misunderstanding of how young people use social media.  Young people notice an abscence from social media much quicker than an off-line abscene.  I understand the value of detoxing and evaluating the use of social media for young people - that's why I was looking at this book.  I'm guessing it is a good book, but if it comes across like your blurb, then it is to be avoided at all costs.

Just my opinion.  I'm a Diocesan Youth and Children's Adviser.
