Format: Hardcover
`It's Complicated' written by Danah Boyd is the story about the social lives of today teens, well-made book that explains everything you need to know young people usage of social media.

Danah Boyd made her book not just a work that will be an excellent reading for parents, but also a book that can be recommended to all those who work with children or see kids as their target audience to which their services and products are tailored.
It is evident that the author spent a significant amount of time to research the subject she wrote about, so her book can certainly be taken as a reference in this field. On the other hand this fact does not seem to affect the ease with which the book is read, its user-friendliness even for those who are not technologically educated.

Due to her experience and background in social media, Danah Boyd's story about discoveries what our kids are doing, though they should not, and vice versa is very interesting and educational work for readers who deal with children.
What will make young readers satisfied about it is the fact that the author succeeded to refute all kinds of myths that are usually connected with teenagers Internet presence and practices.

Her book is unusual, but she successfully blended technology, psychology and the study of teens, whose compilation, thanks to Boyd's experience and unlimited knowledge, can be fully recommended if you are parent of teen kids.

I really enjoyed reading this book which looks at the use of social media by teens and seeks to find a reasoned view. It does not hide the fact there are problems but sets them in context. This left me more reassured but more importantly empowered to look at my own teens' use of social media and hopefully be more helpful overall.

Don't worry that this book is 'out of date'. You may think that because social media moves so quickly that a book written 2 years ago may not be able to fully outline the world we live in today. This book preempts and counters that argument very early on. If you have children, or you are a teacher, you need this book. The relationship between teenagers and social media is complex and vast, but this book will clear up a lot of the doubts you have. The book is written by an anthropologist, not a social media guru.

Finally, a book about young people that is not judgemental but properly rigorous in its efforts to understand them. Relevant to parents worried or just interested in their kids' development. As well as marketeers who want to engage the next generation more effectively. I love the fact it is so strongly empathetic to the world young people are growing up in. . .

This book is about social lives of networked teens, social mediate and how it affects them on a daily basis. Its seems fashion smartphones at all the rage at the moment, only phones are not being used for texting and calling friends but for sending and taking photos, sharing with friends and how children have an obsession when using social media sites such as Facebook, twitter, using app and on Myspace. They say if your not on my space you dont exist..
