Bloggerati, Twitterati : Mary Cross :

She quotes experts, talks numbers and data, and speculates as to why blogs, Twitter and Facebook have changed communication in the way that they have. Cross has definitely done her research with this book. The amount of statistics alone must have taken a great deal of time to pull together as well as to arrange in a logical and effective way.

She quotes a lot of newspaper publications, prominent individuals, and studies that have been conducted and are related to the topics addressed in the book. Cross cited all of her sources as well, identifying in the text which ideas were not hers and then listing them by chapter at the end of the book.

Overall, Cross comes across as a credible and reliable source of information. However, many of the facts, stories and opinions presented are repeated too often to be as effective as Cross probably hoped they would be. Finally, the book was published inmaking some of the information and even some of the ideas and opinions, outdated.

I would recommend this book to others interested in technology, social media and the Internet and its effects on society but with the warning that parts of it are redundant or outdated. In its favor is the fact that it is a short read and easily understood. Feb 24, Megan rated it it was ok.

This was not attention-grabbing book like I thought it was going to be. I am a little disappointed since I thought this book was about blogging and Twitter and how it helped change the way information is portrayed and received. This book was packed with statistics, dates, and quotes from other sources to the percentages of people that are online.

Many of the examples that I found knowledgeable were things that I already knew. To conclude, this book was well written besides all of the data and quotes that were involved. Now, if a person needs to write a report on the history of it all, then this book is for you.

I found a lot of the book to be common knowledge or information I already knew, and since it was written ina lot of the information that it is touting as “new”, is quite out of date already.
