“Influencers in digital wellbeing and ethics need to unite to create frameworks that make it easier to building things we won't regret in the future.” - Dr. Heidi Forbes Öste
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) January 31, 2019
In a new episode of Evolving Digital Self, Author of Hooked: How To Build Habit-Forming Products, Nir Eyal, joins Dr. Heidi Forbes Öste for a conversation on digital wellbeing and ethics (EvolvingDigitalSelf.com). The new episode launches Feb. 5. Check it out on http://www.EvolvingDigitalSelf.com.
According to Nir Eyal: Ingrained habits are behaviors done with little or no conscious thought. They guide more than half our actions each day. When the brain uses shortcuts and stops actively thinking about what to do next, we have formed a habit. Most of us know, habits can be positive and healthy or negative and destructive. Research has shown that technology has been shown to be “habit” forming to our brains, but is it a healthy habit, or a path to destructive tendencies? Dr. Forbes Öste explained, talking about the role of habit-forming products is important because, “influencers in digital wellbeing and ethics need to unite to create frameworks that make it easier to build things we won't regret in the future.”
Nir Eyal specializes in understanding the psychology of building addictive products, while Dr. Forbes Öste shares her message of keeping balance and humanity, as well as a focus on digital wellbeing in the forefront of technological development.
