Book News Annotation:

Thirty-one international academics, independent scholars, researchers, journalists, and writers explore the Facebook phenomenon. The 25 chapters are organized into sections on basic aspects of Facebook, the profile and the self, Facebook friends, social networking, and activity and passivity. A sampling of topics: a reply to Facebook critics, who uses Facebook and why, the privacy virus, playing around with identity, the friendship that makes no demands, gossip and the evolution of Facebook, and Facebook as playground and factory. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Facebook and Philosophy is an entertaining, multi-faceted exploration of what Facebook means for us and for our relationships. With discussions ranging from the nature of friendship and its relationship to "friending," to the (debatable) efficacy of "online activism," this book is the most extensive and systematic attempt to understand Facebook yet. And with plenty of new perspectives on Twitter and Web 2.0 along the way, this fun, thought-provoking book is a serious and significant contribution for anyone working with social media, whether in academia, journalism, public relations, activism, or business. Exploring far-reaching questions — Can our interactions on Facebook help us care about each other more? Does Facebook signal the death of privacy, or (perhaps worse yet) the death of our desire for privacy? — Facebook and Philosophy is vital reading for anyone involved in social networks today.
