In 1979, the seeds of social media were sown by Tom Truscott and Jim Ellis, and the result of that action would give rise to a monster that would not only change the world of communication forever, but also have great impact in all our lives. However, no one was prepared for the ensuing chaos that would be wrought by this new trend.
Every one of us crave the likes, the glamour, the followership, the sheer power to influence people worldwide; for the first time in the history of man, we can be heard and be seen by anyone on the globe connected to the Internet. That somewhat dark desire that was once hidden within us has suddenly been exposed by social media, and the world can't deal.
In this audiobook, the author takes you back in time to where it all started: a brief history of human communication, from yelling and cave writings up to the birth of social media. He elaborates on the significant and obvious benefits of social media as well as its drawbacks, and provides detailed information on its mind control capabilities while proffering solutions on how we can keep our sanity as we learn to properly utilize and grow with social media.
