Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent introduction to Social Media for newbies. As someone who teaches Social Media Classes, both online and in San Francisco, I approached this book looking for help for my students on Social Media Marketing.

It has one only one chapter on that topic, so my first reaction was not positive. But I gave the book a 'second chance,' so to speak, and my jaded instructor eyes wandered thru its pages. It captivated me with little nuggets of new insights on the 'history' of various social media (e.g., Facebook, Friendster, and LinkedIn) as well as tips and tricks for each one.

Its focus is more for the general, novice user. But, as such, it is a great complement to other books on Social Media Marketing per se.

The book also has a strong focus on the "International" aspects of Social Media, explaining - for example - how and why Friendster remains popular abroad even as its popularity has faded in the USA.

If you are a marketer (especially an older one), new to Social Media, this book alone is not sufficient. But when purchased with other Social Media MARKETING books, it is an effective soup-to-nuts complement.

I am always looking for comments, feedback and connections - so Google 'Jason McDonald SEO' to connect with me and share your ideas about the emerging Social Media world of marketing.

Format: Paperback
Waters combines a reporter's accuracy with his own light touch to deliver a snapshot-in-time of the ever expanding social media universe.

Informative and often witty, this book is a bit of history and byte of how-to for business owners, parents, computer / cell phone users, and consumers.

Know anyone like that?
Thought so.

Now go get the book.
