Lol . . . OMG!, Matt Ivester's new book specifically for students about managing online reputation and digital citizenship, is a must read for college and high school students. Ivester is to the point, straightforward and informed about his subject and talks directly to students about navigating school/college in the digital age. Students today spend numerous hours connected and online - via laptop, smart phone and other digital devices doing homework, researching, communicating, and socializing. They are constantly presented with opportunities to share personal information and create content. In "Digital is Different," Ivester conveys the permanence, access, lack of control over content, replicability, speed and pervasiveness that make online conduct challenging for students to navigate. He offers recent stories about college students who have shared content online in ways that substantially harmed their lives and reputations and the lives and reputations of others, including incidents at Duke, Rutgers and UCLA. But he also draws attention to smaller cases - thoughtless "Likes" or online comments that end up in social media investigations of potential employees - or photos of questionable (or illegal) behavior that end up accessible to a wider audience than a student intends.

Ivester isn't preachy or dogmatic - instead, in "Becoming a Conscious Creator of Content," he gives students a series of questions to consider: "Why are you doing this [sharing info online]? Is now the right time? Where is your line between public and private? And How controversial do you want to be?

Just when you think you know what's going on with teens and today's culture.... This book was very informative, especially for parents of teens. I don't think anyone under 25 will ever read it but, boy, do they need to. It brings up good talking points for some much needed discussions between parents and children. Most of the information seems to be just basic common sense but the specifics of on-line examples and recommendations are an added bonus. I especially liked the section discussing potential employers who look at the Facebook pages of perspective applicants. That really happens and some teens just don't believe it or care. Lol, omg, duh.

I am starting my second semester using this book with my freshman Composition students, and the response has been wonderful. I had four sections of Comp. 2 at a Community college, with a handful of high school students, traditional college students, and a number of nontraditional students, with teens of their own. I was impressed with the very focused writing style, the nice way of wrapping up at the end of the chapter, and the use of real world examples. We want to develop digital citizens--this book can help. I am now going to use it with my Education class.

I developed a simple study guide, created a set of discussion boards, and gave students points for posting and doing the study guide. A much higher percentage of my students read this book, liked it, talked about it, and many used it as a resource for one of the assigned papers. I was so pleased with their responses; my high school students (enrolled in an online class) told me, "Our whole high school needs to read this book!"

I decided to read "lol...OMG!!" as I am a therapist that works with adolescents who could benefit from more specific instruction about responsible online behavior. I believe that this book is written in a way that would be appealing to teenagers: It is easy-to-read and makes its points in a clear and succinct manner using facts and psychological phenomena to back them up. I definitely plan on recommending this book and sharing some of the information I learned with my clients and their parents.

The main drawback for me was its brevity... It is only a little more than 100 pages and is written in bigger-than-average font at about 1.5 spacing. So it's really more like a large pamphlet than a regular-sized book. But while that was disappointing to me because I would have been eager to read even more on the topic, it might be a plus to others (e.g., teens who are reluctant to read something given to them by a parent).

One should approach lol...OMG! understanding it was not written by a researcher, though the author is credible due to experience as a social web entrepreneur as detailed in the text. The book reads like a very earnest effort by an MBA student, because that's what it is. Which is not all bad. Other books on reputation management are generally geared toward working professionals or those aspiring to be working professionals. That causes those books to have an abundance of professional networking-oriented information that often gets in the way of the main point. The main point being to consider carefully what you post because the content itself or the impact may not fade away within your lifetime. If the idea is to have a person get that simple idea said many different ways over the course of a fairly breezy book, that is what you'll get.

Strengths
1. Straightforward language and examples that a person can understand with no background in online communities research.
2. Brevity, particularly since the book appears to be padded with extraneous content to boost the page count.
3. Applicability, the plain language and compact content make for a book that is impactful without much effort to review.
4. The discussion on biases in Chapter 5 is the strongest content and it is clear the author invested time in explaining the topic for comprehension.
5. The discussion highlighting the impact of cyber bullying is a close second and is a topic other books on personal branding and online reputation typically do not address in this level of detail.

Weaknesses
1. As a general impression, the author opted too many times for platitudes and generalities to get through a given topic than to cite case studies, news reports, or prior research.
2.
