MY SYNOPSIS

Craig Groeschel teaches us abot how to handle Social Media properly as followers of Christ, so it doesn’t become our master.

MY REVIEW

It’s a very helpful book for any human being dealing with Social Media. The first one on this topic I read and I needed it.

I identify so much with lots of the things he mentioned.

I especially like how he talks to you as a friend. He pretty much says: “look, I’m not in the business of condemning you, I’m the first one #struggling with this, I just want to help you”. That’s how I felt it and it’s great.

There were a lot of things this book made me consider regarding my attitude toward Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and my blog. I certainly don’t want them to be an idol (which could happen) so I need to set some boundaries before it’s too late.

In the book there are so many ways to apply what he’s teaching in everyday life and that’s awesome.

I gave 4 stars because I found the book repetitive at moments, some chapters a bit longer than they should, but that could be just me.

Generally speaking, it’s a great read. Especially the chapters on Integrity, Encouragement and Compassion touched me deeply.

I do recommend it!
