Tackling tech addiction - that's the goal of a coalition formed by former Apple, Facebook, and Google employees. The Center for Humane Technology is launching a new campaign called "The Truth About Tech" to inform parents, teachers, and students about the potentially harmful effects of the gadgets we use every day.
Rob Marvin, Associate Features Editor at PCMag, explains how the coalition plans to fix the problem of tech addiction. The group is partnering with hundreds of schools around the country to explain the dangers of gadget use.
So far, companies like Facebook and Google haven't been incredibly forthright about the issue of tech addiction, but that could slowly change. Marvin says all of these companies are especially concerned with how they are viewed by the public. If people begin to view these companies as potential dangers, then they will likely step in to change things.
