Interesting to follow the experiment at a school where pupils and teachers attempted a digital detox. So what happened? The ask was to switch off Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram et al for one week.
Here is a link to follow but before you go there what is your guess as to:
The number who dropped out immediately?
Those who lasted a few days then caved in?
Those who lasted a whole week?
Some spoke about having to telephone their friends to keep in contact, something they didn’t normally do. That must be have been frightening, trying to think of something to say!
Of course what we are getting an insight to here is to how our young people will communicate when they enter the world of work. Big culture changes ahead!
I’m reflecting on this experiment as I wrote earlier about FOMO being the Fear of Missing Out, every social media addicts worst fear.
