I was hoping for a much more informative overview of how to guide my children through the maze of social media in the coming years. It offers the odd useful piece of advice but it doesn't really highlight anything new on this subject. I felt it was more of a biography on Randi Z.

HASH(0x95131474) out of 5 stars A superficial book about a non-issue 28 Jan. 2014
By Robert Duke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think this book got published because of the Zuckerberg connection. I would have been interested in the author's perspective if she had something serious to say, but it came across to this reader as me, me, me. There was a failed attempt to wrap "all about me" in a respectable and socially useful guise of advice about living in the dot com world. It fell flat with me even though I persisted too long in trying to find something redemptive about the story.

HASH(0x96e80210) out of 5 stars Insightful, Relevant, but Somehow Kind of Self-Centered... 18 Jan. 2014
By QueenBeeBooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If I could give 3 1/2 stars, that'd be a more accurate rating!

Mark Zuckerberg's sister is an author and media mogul in her own right. This is her first adult book (she's also published a children's book called Dot). The introductory (and mostly autobiographical) part of Dot Complicated was a little bland (and sometimes melodramatic), but as Zuckerberg moves onto Internet etiquette and commentary on our digital age, the book picks up speed. It's easy to read and relevant to us all. Despite the fact that Zuckerberg repeats over and over again that this book is for US, it seems a little self-centered at times.

Zuckerberg's goal to help people utilize and take advantage of our new technologies is a noble one, but I feel like it's a little overblown: "When explained properly, in a relatable, approachable way, it [tech] can be amazing and life changing." It's almost as if 'tech' is a new religion, promising a new world of redemption and self-control. I don't believe teaching people about what NOT to post on Facebook is a major philanthropic effort. Nevertheless, the book is full of insightful anecdotes and lessons: "I reached a point when rather than owning a computer, a phone, and a tablet, those devices were owning me...I had forgotten how to just unplug and enjoy the company of those around me. I had forgotten how to be present in the moment."

Honestly, I haven't thought too much about online etiquette, whether I should be posting what I'm posting, or how what I post affects others. Perhaps I should.

Some quotes that stuck out to me:

"A world where every object is a screen means a world of endless access to information, but it also means a world where we risk jeopardizing our relationships with loved ones if we don't look up from that screen from time to time."

"...FOMO, which stands for 'fear of missing out.' FOMO refers to the feelings of jealousy and inadequacy experienced upon seeing the impossibly awesome lives of your friends."

"Technology has completely changed all aspects of dating and romantic relationships. Countless apps and websites help people find potential mates to consider. Texting, video chatting, and social networks have created a whole new set of rules for initial courting and the early stages of relationships."

"Giving everyone a megaphone tends to create a society that favors the loud and self-absorbed. Just because a lot of people are talking all at once doesn't mean anything valuable is being said."

I received this book from a Good Reads giveaway.

HASH(0x97b1da2c) out of 5 stars All about you! 3 Feb. 2014
By lennyrats - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
From an educational standpoint regarding the use of "social media," the author offers common sense statements as to how to use each type media. I would think most people have enough common sense as to how they should abide. What I feel what is wrong with the social media is, often times their misleading statements to their "customers" state one thing, and when the customers buys into it (meaning clicking on a vague label,) it's brings them to something different that what they expected.

From my 30-years of computer application design of which I'm registered as a "Certified Computer Professional," many application today are poorly designed, which causes this expert as well as all the average laymen, much confusion as to what each of the application's functions are to accomplish. Facebook is one such application that started small and took off and now is constantly being changed ongoing (because they have an unexpected tiger by the tail.) What was true last year, is not the same today.

Personally I don't have time to parallel with their changes. I use many different applications and don't have the time to devote to Facebook. Technically, Facebook has rinky-dinky clicking methods as to how accomplish their functions. They, as well as other applications too, use gimmick terms as if we users should know exactly what they mean. Fine and dandy! Then they should include a "Terminology" portal for users to click on that describes what: time-line, poke, comments, etc, means. We should not have to guess what each term means.

In conclusion, as I read Dot Complicated, its more about Randi Zuckerman, who ends her book thanking virtually everyone in the world for her being. Is that not, "all about me?" Leonard Rattini, CCP

HASH(0xa1200384) out of 5 stars Waste of time. 26 April 2014
By Penina Sagadiev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This fell WAY short of my expectations. The book was slow and tedious for a good part with name dropping and a level of detail that served no purpose but to make her sound important (and push her liberal agenda). Don't bother.

Wow. Yet another millennial ego trip with little of substance to it. Note to publishers: Please spare us any more of these.
