PRLog - Aug. 15, 2014 - Mishawaka, IN, August 14, 2014 -- No-holds-barred satire pokes fun at society’s widespread digital addiction, raising red flags about its potential destructiveness and offering a poignant commentary on who and what is actually evolving.


Is technology advancing more rapidly than its users?

For Steve Krupnik, the answer is a clear and resounding yes. The author of the new book Is It Safe to Friend a Dead Guy on Facebook? believes there’s a tragic epidemic occurring around us, a dreadful disconnect between human beings and the real world
we live in.

He explains, “We are paying frightfully little attention to our real-world surroundings because we are addicted to digital devices.”

Is It Safe to Friend a Dead Guy on Facebook? begins on a typical Tuesday morning at the office. Krupnik is just finishing a writing assignment when he notices an email from Facebook. He starts to delete it but then realizes he’s being invited to connect with a friend.

This friend has recently died.

What follows, explains Krupnik, is a humorous, barroom-style treatise on the digital age, an exploration of how devices are negatively impacting users’ lives, and pointed commentary on how this pervasive new addiction closes people off from the real world around them.

Frank but friendly, Krupnik notes, “It’s been my experience that the people in this world with the least amount of mental and spiritual strength also happen to be digital junkies. Coincidence? I don’t think so. As a matter of fact, I’ll prove it to you in this book.”

Smart phones, social media, video games, texting – Krupnik addresses them all in turn, combining his writing with illustrations to create what he calls “a one-two punch” that yields a humorous and insightful look at the digital age and how it negatively affects our quality of life.

He comments, “I’m fascinated with people’s relationships with their devices. I’m hoping my book will help society realize we need to swallow a healthy dose of reality and find balance between our digital lives and our flesh-and-blood relationships.” He adds, “Readers may disagree with my perspective, but it’s hard to deny that digital devices are changing our lives in ways that may not be in our best interests.”
