Summary:
Facebook makes us lonely. Selfies breed narcissism. On Twitter, hostility reigns. Pundits and psychologists warn that digital technologies substantially alter our emotional states. But Luke Fernandez and Susan Matt show that technology doesn't just affect how we feel from moment to moment-it changes profoundly the underlying emotions themselves.
