Centered on the Crash Course YouTube series, Navigating Digital Information, here is what we will learn in Episode 9, Click Restraint:
“The architecture of the social internet itself tells us not to be patient – to load more tweets, to hit refresh for new posts, and to click the top search results.

So today we’re going to teach you some tips to exercise a little more click restraint on the Internet.”
