October 1st 2018 - On the Todd Starnes Show:

In his new book, "Unfriended: Finding True Community in a Disconnected Culture" that hits shelves Tuesday, author Joe Battaglia discusses the dangers of social media - and explains how online behaviors are endangering "real community, friendship and the ability to interact in truth with one another". In the book, Battaglia discusses how getting away from the screen and enjoying God's creations can help lead to a more fulfilling life.

"I don't think it has always been like that. I think the opportunity for people to remain anonymous, in the internet and their dealings with social media, I think we hide behind a firewall of impersonality and we use it for that. And that as I said affords people the ability to be as uncivil as possible, and just vent their frustrations and fears," Battaglia said.
