Information Pushback

If you’ve felt overwhelmed by the constant flow of information and the expectation to be online every day all the time, you are not alone. A growing number of people are pushing back and dropping out of social media and other technological forms of communication. At the University of Washington Information School, we examined this trend. We even gave it a name: “pushback.” As researchers, we believe this phenomenon is here to stay.

Thought this article was really interesting.  It seems like more and more people are pushing back against technology in order to have a fare more balanced life.
