Undermines Democracy ͍ Kindle Ebook Author Siva Vaidhyanathan ᾨ Fortunately, finally, we seem ready to have the necessary conversations about how social media has changed our hearts and minds and politics, including the hard conversations And this is the right book for our moment It lays out, in crisp, compelling language, why Facebook may be good for some individuals but not good for democracy Antisocial Media is not negative or defeatist But it does not sugarcoat the facts We can only remake technology to conform to new social values if we do the hard work of committing to what they are That s a problem that Facebook can t solve This is history, philosophy, and a call to action Sherry Turkle, Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology, MIT, and author of Reclaiming Conversation and Alone Together Hello, reader Do you use Facebook Do you see it times in a given day than you, say, drink a glass of water If so, I suggest you find out from Siva Vaidhyanathan to what it is that you ve given not only yourself, but also your crucial little portion of our world He s the one who can tell you Jonathan Lethem, author of Motherless Brooklyn and Fortress of Solitude As a San Franciscan, I ve had a front row seat for the rise of Silicon Valley as a global power, and what the glossy new oligarchs have brought us terrifies me, as has the widespread obliviousness to the consequences of their new systems of information control It s made me enormously grateful for Siva Vaidhyanathan, who set out after the election to dissect exactly how Facebook had helped corrupt our minds, our culture, our elections, and our governments His scathing conclusions here should both chill you and equip you to face the perils the new information megacorporations pose to each and all of us Rebecca Solnit, author of Hope in the Dark An eye opening and provocative examination of the unintended consequences that this tech giant inflicted on the global community it created Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Elizabeth Ware Packard Professor of Communication, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, and author of Cyberwar Facebook s plan to connect the world has backfired Democratic societies are unraveling everywhere Conflict is trumping community, suspicion is undermining trust Antisocial Media is the best account of how and why the world s leading tech firms have contributed to this crisis, here and across the globe Vaidhyanathan s message is not merely necessary it s urgent Eric Klinenberg, Professor of Sociology at NYU and author of Palaces for the People How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life Vaidhyanathan does have some solutions in mind, but they are not the simple tweaks Facebook proposes There s no way at this point to reengineer a platform that rewards hasty, emotional, shallow engagement or moderates content to ensure two billion people behave themselves We need to work across borders to make these steps multinational if not global And we need to do it soon The lamps are going out all over Europe again, and far beyond Barbara Fister, Inside HigherEd In Antisocial Media, University of Virginia professor Siva Vaidhyanathan gives a full and rigorous accounting of Facebook s sins Much of the criticism will be familiar to anyone who has been following the news about the company What distinguishes the book is Vaidhyanathan s skill in putting the social media phenomenon into a broader context legal, historical and political Nicholas Carr, The Washington PostIn a post Cambridge Analytica, post Donald Trump election world, Vaidhyanathan s book Antisocial Media is a critique of the Facebook machine and the ways it operates on users in terms of pleasure, surveillance, attention, protest, politics, and disinformation Express Newspaper Service, The Indian ExpressVaidhyanathan has written a structured response to the behemoth that is Facebook He acknowledges all the rhetorically valid ways in which Facebook might offer emotionally fulfilling interactions the author himself is a user , but he buttresses these emotive motivations with close readings of the filter bubble, monetization of all transactions on the platform, and even the inherent vice of good business Verdict Ideal for readers who live in the world of social media who want to put these platforms into context Jesse A Lambertson, Library JournalAn excellent critique of the social media giant underlines the threat it poses to us all and suggests how it can be tamed John Naughton, The Guardian With 30 per cent of the world s population on Facebook, Vaidhyanathan contends that the platform could become the operating system of our lives And while it s fun to catch up with old school friends, its mediated cacophony is a powerful tool for the vocal minority to quickly subvert silent majorities Zuckerberg himself is curiously complacent Facebook, he says, is just too big to govern We are victims of its success Nick Smith, Engineering This thoroughly researched and persuasively argued account of social media s noxious effects on the very fabric of society is the first study of its kind a trenchant analysis of Facebook s unwholesome side effects It needed saying, and it s supremely well said Juanita Coulson, The LadyAntisocial Media gives a full and rigorous accounting of Facebook s sins Much of the criticism will be familiar to anyone who has been following the news about the company What distinguishes the book is Vaidhyanathan s skill in

with close readings of the filter bubble, monetization of all transactions on the platform, and even the inherent vice of good business He lays out how the very nature of Facebook s advertising structure that anyone can place ads and how the rhetoric that drives the platform s ongoing work to fix itself after the 2016 election may themselves be problematic Verdict Ideal for readers who live in the world of social media who want to put these platforms into context Jesse A Lambertson, Library Journal In a post Cambridge Analytica, post Donald Trump election world, Vaidhyanathan s book is a

From propagating fake news to violating our privacy, from empowering authoritarian regimes to enabling anti Semitic advertising, Facebook has become the social network everyone loves to hate Vaidhyanathan, whose previous books include The Googlization of Everything and Why We Should Worry, has produced a valuable guide, written in clear, non academic prose, to the monstrous force Facebook has become And if his overview of what s gone wrong with Facebook will seem familiar to those of us who obsess about these things, it nevertheless serves as a worthwhile introduction to the Zuckerborg and all that it has wrought If only Vaidhyanathan had some compelling ideas on what to do about it If only any of us did Dan Kennedy, The Arts Fuse Vaidhyanathan has been a strenuous critic of the technology industry, and the book is best described by his own pithy summary The problem with Facebook is Facebook He s spent the past several years reading and thinking with scholarly depth about not just how Facebook works, but why it was built the way that it was Alexis C Madrigal, The Atlantic Vaidhyanathan writes with conviction and a deep sense of history His research is sharp and diverse and his long association with media studies and readings on the philosophy of modern technology is vividly reflected in his writing Personally, it was a pleasure to know that Vaidhyanathan had worked with the New York University where legendary social commentator and a critic of technology, Neil Postman, taught, and his anecdotes on Postman s ideas are a social media student s delight Jinoy Jose P, The Hindu I think your book has to be, in my mind, one of the most important nonfiction books of this year, if not in the last decade It s extremely important for the users especially to look at the mechanics of this monster that s been created over the last decade or so Juan Gonzlez, Daily Show Co Host, Democracy Now Siva Vaidhyanathan is the Robertson Professor of Media Studies and the Director
