An interesting look at our online lives. After reading (online) articles about how the Internet has changed through the years - going from using screen names and hiding real identities to NEEDING real identities to prove you're human - this is a look at the other side of things. How much information are you putting out there about yourself? What can people find out about you, and how will they use that information? I think the book might be a little more geared towards safety in regards to identity theft and professional matters, but there are also unique approaches to how online dating changes courtships and the difference between online personalities and real life identities. Very thought provoking and easy to read.
