DIGITAL RULES

A young person asked me so I tried!
  1. Treat the internet as a vending machine, not a home. You can get things from it but you will be incredibly uncomfortable if you try to live in there.
  2. Treat your smartphone like a car, not a pen. There is no reason not to reach for a pen, but you wouldn't jump in a car just to go a few feet.
  3. Treat social media like the podium at an awards ceremony. You'd be gracious, and say something nice about your friends. You might make a joke, but probably not, unless you're good at them. You'd keep it brief. If you treat social media like drinks with friends, imagine how well it would go if 100,000 people watched you have drinks with friends.
