I have been researching genealogy for 20 years, using software for 17 years, and using social media for 10 years. I have had my work stolen and presented (with portions written in the first-person copied verbatim) as the thief's own work. I highly recommend this text for those who are wanting to incorporate social media. Social media is wonderful! But, please, follow her pointers.
For those with a similar background incorporating technology and social media into your research, you may find the appendices of sites most valuable. I found a link to a DNA chart most valuable. It was information I already had, but presented in a visual that "clicked" with me more than the pie charts, etc. I believe there are many other hidden gems - like the DNA chart - for the experienced users, too.
This would make a great gift for someone who is new to genealogy, using DNA results, or incorporating social media/Web 2.0 with their research. The digital version (for Kindle or Kindle apps) allows the reader to click on the hyperlink and immediately explore the referenced site.
I would have given 5 stars if there was a link to a blog with updated information.
