LOS ANGELES, June 2 (UPI) -- Former America's Next Top Model contestant Kim Stolz discussed the importance of selfies and social media during an interview for her upcoming book Unfriending My Ex: And other things I'll never do.

The 30-year-old television personality sat down with Tech Crunch to address how addiction to technology affects our lives and our relationships.

"Social media and technology have fundamentally altered the way we do business, couple and break up, develop friendships, and construct our identities and our notions of aspiration and fame," reads the description of Stolz's book on its website.

"We make decisions about where we'll go based on whether it's Instagrammable. We don't have friends, we have followers. For an entire generation, an experience not captured on social media might as well not have happened at all," the description continues.

After making it to the final five in the fifth season of ANTM, Stolz went on to become a VJ for MTV. She says on her book's website that her identity "has been forged" by reality TV, social media and technology. You can find what she has to say about the addicting trio in Unfriending My Ex, out on June 24.
