Technology and social media have changed, enhanced, and complicated every facet of our lives-from how we interact with our friends to how we elect presidents. How we manage our careers to how we support important causes. How we find love to how we raise our children.
The technology revolution is here to stay. We can't hide from it or pretend that it's not changing out lives in a thousand different ways. In Dot Complicated, Randi Zuckerberg explains how to navigate the social challenges created by technology and details practical solutions for maintaining balance in an interconnected world. Through firsthand accounts and stories from her time at Facebook and beyond, she explores the obstacles and opportunities presented by this new online reality. In the process, she establishes practical rules to bring some much-needed order and clarity to our connected, complicated, and constantly-changing lives.
