's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: female-authors, art, audiobook

Rather than advertising a cure-all for social media addiction, Odell advocates for a reframing of our engagement with the world at large in this wonderful, almost essayistic book.

I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to interrogate how social media has shaped our mutual interactions, our collective memory, but most importantly, how it mediates the roles that we play in shaping society and it us.
