New Dutch report on the Dark Side of Social Media

Sander Duivestein
January 07, 2013

A little over one year ago our book on The App Effect came out. Here we stated that what really matters about the rise of apps is that this irresistible force works in tandem to create new information behavior that already has begun to profoundly impact organizations. The App Effect will leave a lasting mark on our interaction with products and services. Today we present an additioneel chapter to our book called De Zwarte Kant van Social Media, which translates to The Dark Side of Social Media. The report deals with the impact of social media and their constant streams of updates on our ability to concentrate, be productive and think deep. We also offer our vision on how to ‘undesign’ the immediacy of social media with a concept called Slow tech. The report is Dutch-only (for now) and you can download it here. You can find the press release (also in Dutch) following this link.
