Overview

"The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops that [Facebook has] created are destroying how society works. No civil discourse, no cooperation, misinformation, mistruth."
Chamath Palihapitiya, former vice-president for User Growth at Facebook

Are you using social media, or is social media using you? We know something is wrong. Our attention span is microscopic. We carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. Life is a constant battle. It doesn't have to be this way.

Relive Software Engineer Nicholas Carter's four-year journey of discovery through the gauntlet of The Age of Social Media. Reflect on his lessons learned and explore real-world practical exercises to master your use of social media, smartphones, and connective technology.

Look behind the curtain of social media and understand the objectives of the billionaires who run them. Leave animosity, angst, and anxiety behind. This isn't a book on shunning technology and living like a hermit. This is the instruction guide for becoming a Power User on the wild west frontier of The Internet.

Be the person you were meant to be. Leave your mark. Change the World.
