Facebook founder’s sister writes a children’s book warning against wasting time online

Posted by: Jennifer Cefai (3 years ago)

In a fit of irony we can scarcely believe, Randi Zuckerberg – otherwise known as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s sister and a former employee of the network itself – has written a book for children to explain how important it is to occasionally be “unplugged”. That’s right – the sister of the man who created the biggest outlet for wasting time online has found a way to warn younger generations not to lose themselves on the internet.

Dot is an illustrated picture book that focuses on activity spent offline and not specifically on an iPad. Zuckerberg herself described in a blog post, “Dot loves technology. A LOT. She’s obsessed with her devices (sound familiar?), but with a little push, she’s reminded that life’s a little bit richer when you look up from the screen”. She went on to explain, “As I watch my two-year-old begin to discover technology, I feel certain that this is an important message to share with a younger audience.”

We’re all just dying to know what her brother makes of this.
