I found this article very iretnesting and accurate in many ways. It not only offered a new insight of what it means to unplugg, but it also conveyed a positive view of the Internet in our lives nowadays. I certainly feel that many times we become distracted by the Internet and start multitasking, opening different tabs which end up distracting us. I do this all the time and the author's advice of giving our full attention to one page by shutting down all those tabs or other devices seems like a good idea since we would still be connected, but in a better and more attentive way. I liked the article's smart and insightful approach of our society today. I feel like the author includes herself as part of this technologically saavy society and thus can convey the ideas we all have about the power of the Internet. It is true that many times the Internet overtakes our priorities and we become slaved to the need of always being connected. Moreover, the fact that social media has become such a big part of society is an example of how interactions and the buidling of relationships has changed so much. With this article's tips about still staying connected by giving the Internet space in the family life and by not being absorbed with the FOMO effect, is a good and realistic advice to adapting to technology in a positive way. All in all, I really liked this article. I feel that there is always something new to learn on the Internet and if we learn to make it part of our lives in a positive way, not seeing it as an enemy or a negative influence, but rather as a friend and tool to gain more knowledge; we can truly take advantage of everything it has to offer and grow as individuals with significant contributions to give to society.
