    I find myself in a quandary; I agree that the digital world has a very strong influence on our behavior. It has the capability of directing our attention to things that are trivial. At the same time, the internet is full of relevant information. Modern and latests findings in neurology and behavioral psychology, for instance. Without the digital network, I would not have been able to watch this video. And so although I know the dangers of using the social media, I try to make conscious decisions how and when I would engage in them. I am also aware that the algorithms are designed precisely to manipulate us by feeding us what we crave for. Therefore, it is still necessary to completely abstain from the web once in a while. Also limiting my indulgence, even in reading or watching and getting involved, even in „good“ topics.
