Abstract:

Join us in an exclusive and stimulating journey uncovering the new set of rules for modern etiquette in the digital era. More and more people in the world want to somehow limit the use of technology and understand the degree of their dependence on the Internet. Digital Detox is a recognized global trend, but still has not been fully studied. We are going to ask ourselves why are we constantly pulled to the network, the algorithms are changing society and the person, how to explain the new feelings that we experience, what new processes are happening in the human mind in this fully digitalised world. In general Digital Detox is a period of time during which a person refrains from using electronic devices such as smartphones or computers, regarded as an opportunity to reduce stress or focus on social interaction in the physical world etc. More and more people these days say: "break free of your devices and go on a digital detox".
