I plan on using it as a required text for all the future classes I teach in social media.

Van Dijck makes her book relevant by showing her readers that social connectivity thrives on 5 platforms: ownership, technology, governance, business model, user/ usage, and content. In each chapter the reader learns how various media works in these platforms and why our culture is not taking notice of important changes such as privacy matters. Read this book if you want a philosophical look into what users of media today would knock-off as being a non-philosophical topic, however, they may realize it may only appear this way because it’s changed a culture and isn’t slowing down yet.
