- Gathers findings from multiple fields that overlap — including communication, sociology, psychology, media studies, and information and data science — so that key understandings and insights can be integrated to give a comprehensive picture of modern techno-social life.
- Opens with a short, engrossing history of internet and digital/mobile/social media to provide context for the chapters that follow.
- Recognizes that the entire world is not “superconnected” and contrasts high-tech societies with those that are less developed technologically.
- Incorporates excerpts from face-to-face and email interviews from my 20-plus years of research to illustrate relevant points.
