View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Social media has fundamentally transformed the way we live. This book aims to show how and why. We spend more than 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook. We send 35 million Tweets per day. We check in more than a million times a day on Foursquare. But numbers do not tell the whole story. This book grew from a curiosity to discover the human faces behind the statistics, the social butterflies. It examines how social media has altered our behavior from the perspective of an exclusive group of social media pioneers. This book highlights people who fostered unique, creative, or groundbreaking dialogue online—they are creators, not just consumers of content or re-Tweeters.
