This makes it an excellent snapshot of the world of media technologies from 2010 to 2013. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." ―P. L. Kantor, formerly, Southern Vermont College, in CHOICE

The exhilarating challenge to throw an explanatory net over this refractory field has been taken up with relish by Connected Viewing." ―Stuart Cunningham, Queensland University of Technology
"Jennifer Holt and Kevin Sanson provide a compelling and wide-ranging examination of the contemporary media environment that presents issues ripe for new types of research, while also giving scholars, students, and industry executives alike a multifaceted understanding of how―and why―people participate in viewing and sharing activities the way they do." ―Sam Ford, co-author of Spreadable Media
