Seeing Ourselves Through Technology: How We Use Selfies, Blogs and Wearable Devices to See and Shape Ourselves
Non-Fiction, Technology, Psychology, Social-media
Jill Walker Rettberg
The book is about how we use technology in the new social-media era for communication. And, how this shapes our self-image. How the way we connect with others, and with ourselves is changing. It talks about the various filters that we apply on the reality as we perceive it, and how we are automating the process of diary-writing/recording of our lives. It discusses how we are quantifying our lives and how, while it does all of this, our privacy is being affected, specially by surveillance.
Are you interested in knowing how technology (read social media) is affecting you on a day to day basis without you even realising what is happening to you? Or do you ever wonder about people who expose too much of their personal lives on social media? This book may help you get answers to some such questions. And, it's free!
