Emma Gannon was born in 1989, the year the World Wide Web was conceived, so she's literally grown up alongside the Internet. There've been late night chat room experiments, sexting from a Nokia and dubious webcam exchanges. And let's not forget catfishing, MSN, digital friendships and #feminism. She was basically social networking way before it was a thing - and she's even made a successful career from it.
Ctrl Alt Delete is Emma's painfully funny and timely memoir, in which she aims to bring a little hope to anybody who has played out a significant part of their life online. Her confessions, revelations and honesty may even make you log off social media (at least for an hour).
Emma Gannon is an award-winning blogger, writer, podcaster and digital marketer. She has written for numerous media outlets, including The Sunday Times, Telegraph, Guardian, Stylist, Grazia, Independent, Thought Catalog, Daily Beast, Huffington Post, Hello Giggles and Time Out.
