Randi Zuckerberg is perhaps the last person you’d expect to tell you to tell you to make sure you disconnect from social media every once in awhile. Okay, second-to-last person. But the former Facebook executive and older sister to Mark Zuckerberg has come out with a new book advising just that.

The elder Zuckerberg points out that, for many, social media becomes an all-consuming, constant companion. We’re forgetting to live our lives because we’re so busy checking our phones and updating statuses. While it does seem slightly ironic for someone from the company who brought us Facebook Home to say that, she’s certainly not wrong.

One of her best pieces of advice: Be yourself online and know when to press delete instead of share. Something a lot of people need to learn.

In her book, Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives, Zuckerberg talks about the need to balance social media with our real world lives. She also wrote a children’s book, Dot, to get kids to spend more time outside. Both books are intended to show the benefits of living your life outside of the online world, and not fall victim to the constant barrage of messages, emails, etc.
