For those who don't have Facebook...you will even understand, and relate.
Quick read, interesting, fun and informative.
Randi Zuckerberg's "Dot Complicated" provides insightful advice about technology and its impact on children and families, dating and romantic relationships, work and on one's personal identity. I found it helpful to read how one can achieve a "Tech-Life Balance" through the lens of Randi's personal experiences - from her youth in Dobbs Ferry, New York to her college experiences at Harvard, from her early work experiences at Ogilvy (and Facebook with younger brother Mark), to her own company, Zuckerberg Media (zuckerbergmedia.com) - and with family in-between.
The chapters of "Dot Complicated" include not only personal reflections and experiences, but helpful "Tips for Achieving Tech-Life Balance." These highlights make it easy to refresh one's thoughts later on.
Some who have not yet read the book might expect Randi to be obsessed with "tech," but she spends a great deal of time talking about the importance of personal relationships and in-person interactions. “If attention, scarce as ever, is a sort of currency today, then we might as well spend it cultivating meaningful experiences in our lives and with our friends online as we would offline.”
Having said that, I have to agree with Randi, “Social media skills are going to become necessary in the new job marketplace. Employers are going to want to hire people who know how to use social media, rather than those who ignore it or are bad at it or do not appreciate its power.” Best not to fall behind - nor to allow your children to do so.
On Carolyn's Nonprofit Blog I posted two years ago, "Gadgets Are the Root of All Evil?" The article discusses my research regarding the effect of "gadgets" on children, and how I developed a home run case statement for funding a hands-on children's zoo expansion in Dallas, Texas. I read with interest Randi's pros-and-cons about the impact of technology on young children, and was pleased we came to the same general conclusion.
"But even if it were possible to deny our children access to technology, why should we? When technology is used the right way by children, it makes a positive difference in their lives. This doesn't mean technology should replace ordinary face-to-face interactions or any number of the critical learning experiences of growing up. Technology provides a powerful supporting role, enhancing those educational and developmental experiences by fostering creativity and intellectual curiosity."
On another precautionary note, I have friends of every imaginable political and religious persuasion. They need to take note of Randi's experiences when working with Facebook during the 2008 political conventions (Facebook tracked both Democratic and Republican conventions): “... the Republican convention was somber from the start … there was also just a general apathy toward Facebook, social media, and technology. People didn’t want to hear about what we had to offer and weren’t interested in making use of the tools and resources at their disposal.” And to their great peril, I might add.
Again, we must keep in mind the tools of technology are exactly that, "tools – meant to make life better, not worse.” I recommend this book highly.
