It's not JUST about social media!,

This review is from: Overcoming the Digital Divide: How to Use Social Media and Digital Tools to Reinvent Yourself and Your Career (Paperback)
As a "boomer" who recently retired, I wish I had this book even FIVE year ago to assist my career! I always thought social media was for teenie boppers who had nothing better to do with their time--and now we know why I didn't go further in my field as an information processing specialist! First, it's written in understandable language and not what I call "technobabble". Secondly, I have a new goal in life and that is to become one of the 1% of the 1-9-90 rule instead of one of the 90%! I've read many books putting together seniors and computers but this one was the MOST educational. I've only tapped into using a computer but I believe I can master it! I think it's been more of a "fear" thing than a "generational" thing but "Overcoming the Digital Divide" ejected a lot of my fears into cyberspace. As a result, I've acquired more knowledge than I expected from this incredible little book, my LinkedIn profile is updated, I've been encouraged to stay current, I "Skype", I play games with my "real" friends. I understand more now than before I read the book and highly recommend it to all my friends, retired or not. I'd write more but I also learned about StumbleUpon through this book so I've got some "research" to do!
