It provides incredibly simple, step by step stuff. If you are under 30 and/or already use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., you will skim by maybe 10% of the book. If you aren’t active in social media already, this will be incredibly helpful. It doesn’t get too nitty gritty into the details, but it gives you a great outline for the first year or so of blogging/developing a brand so that you can be specific about what you need to research/look into more for each moment in that first year or so.
“LikeWar: The Weaponization of Social Media” opens with a telling quote: “It sounds a dreadful thing to say, but these are things that didn’t necessarily need to be true as long as they’re believed. Alexander Nix”. Authors P. W. Singer and Emerson T. Brooking do a pretty good job of tracing the trajectory of social media from its scant beginnings to its contemporary (and growing) role as a political weapon. The authors have done extensive research and seem determined to include every note they made. Much of the content is conclusionary, some of it reasonable, some not.
One of the best sections of the book and perhaps the key to the entire book is the author’s rendition of how Taylor Swift became an Instagram icon and how terrorist group ISIS emulated her style. The book also goes into the history of the internet, as well as the beginnings of social media. It gives us a little history on the early years of social media, focusing on details. It discusses how ISIS, Russia, the US, China, and others have used the internet and social media over the years as well as the rise of the citizen journalist. In short, it is a great book the tells the true power of social media.

Alone Together is the mid-life management and social media guide which describes the cons of technology in our daily life. Sherry Turkle is the author of this fantastic book. Growing up in today’s modern world is a lot different as compared to a few decades ago. Today, everything circulates around technology and our life is measured by the number of friends we have on social media. This technology also destroyed our relations and today we are tearing apart the emotions of people through texting. We did not know the inner emotions of people. We can’t focus on anything if we keep an internet connection on or sometimes we can’t wait to see the reach of our snapshot post.
Now, the people rely on their phone more like checking email, history of homework, calculator and perform other tasks. Face to face conversation is almost rare and when it happens then they have nothing to talk about after a few minutes. The technology makes you feel petty and worse about yourself while seeing continuously perfect models on TV channels or social media and keeps reminding that you are not fit. The people tend to focus on taking pictures and they can’t enjoy the moments of seeing beauty. We waste a lot of time on social media, Netflix and many other sources.
