From the Publisher

Flip Twitter the bird.
Tell Facebook to f#@% off.
Lose it on LinkedIn.

Somewhere between the advent of Facebook and launching Twitter to the masses, the Internet betrayed us. It allowed pages to be viewed by job interviewers, newsfeeds to be flooded by Aunt Julie, and for constant tweets about what color socks that random girl from the study group is going to wear today.

This book is the hilarious reply all that says: enough is enough. We don’t want to see the pictures from your business trip to Omaha. We don’t want a page-by-page account of what’s going on in Twilight. We definitely don’t want a virtual drink!

When you can’t fix the problem, fix the blame. And since there’s no way in 2.0-hell that you can put an end to the bastardization of the Book, you may as well have a good laugh while pointing the finger at those who ruined their online experience.

Their idea was to get there early enough to be first in line, then let Hawkers promote their wait to generate almost-free publicity. It may sound dumb, but it worked. The women waited in line for 38 hours. While they stood there, Hawkers amped up the stunt by hiring them a masseuse and a violinist, plus a p

Bullies and Trolls

ONCE UPON A URL, the World Wide Web was a place of fantastic possibility. People went online to meet and befriend total strangers. They could share their passions and opinions on LiveJournal or GeoCities or even Myspace. The democratization of information, no longer controlled and distributed exclusively by the mainstream media, was liberating. Today the web is far more sophisticated—the idea of blogging seems quaint, a handful of giant companies (mostly Facebook) controls what we discover, and teenagers all have their own “personal brands.” More notably the innocent, collegial, summer-camp f

The Truth About Facebook and Millennials

News came out recently that Facebook remains the most popular social network among American teens. Wait … WHAT? I thought teens hated Facebook. Time, The Washington Post and others (even Entrepreneur) have reported that teens are shedding Facebook like a winter coat in springtime. Not so fast. The fact is that teens continue to use Facebook, although they do seem to be diversifying their activity among additional social media platforms. This spring a survey by the Pew Research Center, a Washington, D.C., “fact tank,” found that 71 percent of teens use Facebook, making it the most popular socia
