Facebook And Philosophy: What's On Your Mind? (Popular Culture And Philosophy)

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.

Normally, I would never leave a rating for a book I have not yet finished.But this book has only two ratings so far, and one of them is a one-star rating clearly intended for a completely different book and inadvertently posted on the wrong page. I worry that this books sales are being hurt by a one-star review intended for a very different book about Facebook. (On my comment to that review, I link to the book that it seems to be intended for).This is looking to be either a four or five star book; I'm enjoying the essays. Once I finish, I'll revise this review to be more accurate & informative.

Nice book, where philosophy is taken as an alternate approach, say, more creative, loose, to analyze Facebook. Besides digital platform's futilities, Facebook has many attractive sides and represents new horizon for interactivity. I appreciated very much.

Facebook and Philosophy: What's On Your Mind provides a powerful philosophical examination of the phenomenon of Facebook and how it changes human relationships and social values. Nearly thirty contemporary thinkers familiar with Facebook's culture consider its impact and cultural milieu, from issues of privacy and the quality and perception of 'friends' to gossip, perception and the evolution of Facebook. Computer and philosophy collections alike will appreciate these lively dialogues.

Well researched and written.

This book has an enticing title and I have purchased hundreds of books from and this is the FIRST time I am writing such a terrible review! It is simply 2 page fictional stories made up by the author about so-called FB addicts and how FB has affected their lives. The author states these are fictional towards the END of the book and after every story, it advertises authors website to get support. Online support group for addicts of the internet?! haha ... The stories are ridiculous and there is much better info avail FREE from doing a Google search. I can't even return the book and get a refund since I ordered Kindle version. Waste of money, no value at all...
