A closely reasoned account of why the sosh meed are bad for you and all of us, from a guy who ought to know. If you don't like being manipulated and influenced in a hundred different ways by bots, fake people, and algorithms, do what the man says, bail out now. The question is, whether the people who really need this advice, can focus long enough to read a 140-page book. Try thinking of it as ten long posts.

This is an excellent essay on why social media is not the right platform for our current state of affairs. I would recommend this to everyone who uses the internet and I would also recommend deleting your accounts after reading this. Super engaging and well written, be sure to check this one out. -Matt

This book explains how social media works and how the companies (eg. Facebook, Google and Instagram) behind it are using constant surveillance and subconscious manipulation.
It explains how social media is designed to be addictive and is making us antisocial and fragmenting conversation.
An interesting and relevant book.
