The relative anonymity the Internet provides allows us to assert our knowledge like a professor, show off our seemingly perfect lives, and judge like we are presiding over a court of law. The problem with this relatively new phenomenon is that we often make snap judgments about other people s actions or statements without knowing all of the facts, and without giving others the benefit of the doubt. This volume dives deep into the realities of the Internet age: Do we become different people when we re on the Internet? What responsibility do we have in our treatment of others in this new society? Is it our place to be virtual judge and jury? Bibliography, Detailed Table of Contents, Further Information Section, Index, Primary Sources, Websites.

"Facebook's founding is legend. In a Harvard dorm, Mark Zuckerberg invented a new way to connect with friends and the rest is history. But for the people who actually molded this great idea into a game-changing $300 billion company, the experience was far more tumultuous and uncertain than we might expect. Mike Hoefflinger was one of those Facebook insiders. As a computer engineer turned marketing innovator who worked with COO Sheryl Sandberg, Hoefflinger had a front-row seat to the company's growing pains, stumbles, and reinventions. Becoming Facebook tells the coming-of-age story of the now venerable giant. Filled with insights and anecdotes from crises averted and challenges solved, the book tracks the company's development, uncovering lessons learned on its way to greatness."--Provided by publisher.
