Description

An acclaimed journalist and blogger, Jeff Jarvis is a strong advocate for social media and its ability to transform the world. As the influence of social media such as Facebook and Twitter grows, many critics are alarmed at how this public sharing is adversely affecting the people and cultures of the world. On the other hand, as Jarvis provocatively argues, these new technologies are providing a great boon to the world and bringing about an era of sharing and community unlike any seen before.

Professional reviews

"So much discussion today focuses on privacy and what we lose when we share our lives online. This book turns that argument on its head by challenging us to think about how sharing can also enrich our lives. Author/narrator Jeff Jarvis's voice has a slight nasal tone, and his pronunciation can be mushy, but his enthusiasm and energy make the book come alive. Jarvis varies his pitch and tone to keep us interested, and he's able to accentuate both his jokes and main points. What we share about our lives is a hot topic today, and Jarvis has some provocative things to say about it. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
