This is an interesting read as it gives you an idea as to where we have come from and to where we are going in this day and age of the internet. Talks about google, texting, facebook, and others social media as to how we are now more connected to each other.

Good for historical perspective of the Internet April 16 2012
By Lauren S. Bottomly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Digital Divide, although published in Fall 2011, contains, for the most part, articles from the 1990s and early 2000s. This means that the reader gets a decent historical perspective of how rapidly social networking and Internet use have changed, but I found myself a little frustrated that privacy issues, for instance, did not receive much ink beyond passing anecdotal references. I found some of Bauerlein's categories and the various studies cited throughout the book suspect for lack of depth, but those things are for each reader to figure out and pursue further, if so inclined. By all means, read this book for a history of the Internet. And it does acquaint the reader who is beyond the age of game obsession with some new facts of life, such as the fact that game designers are now educating educators, students, the military, and much of the workforce. The articles in this book provide some interesting background. It would be good to see a sequel at some point.

I read the Kindle version of this book through my public library. Its rendering and navigation are Kindle-perfect.

A bit dated but helpful Dec 19 2012
By RobenC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are trying to define and understand the differences between digital natives and digital immigrants, this is a good place to start. It is a collection of essays. Supplement your reading of this book with current items, also.

Good Reference & Entertaining Read, but shouldn't be viewed as a Comprehensive Guide to all Things Digital Dec 12 2012
By C. Or J. Mostek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Bauerlein is a talented story-teller. It is not uncommon for tech types to be unable to communicate, but Mark keeps things interesting enough that I found myself choosing to pick up this book as a source of entertainment, rather than sticking with my regular discipline of reference reading before bed. And I found myself relating stories to colleagues.

There are some pretty juicy tidbits about keyword searches, and who searches for what, along with some interesting insight on how search words are monetized.

Don't expect this book to be some sort of end-all and be-all guide to the Internet, social media, and the digital world in general, because that would just be impossible to fit into one book.
"The Digital Divide" Mark Bauerlein April 18 2014

Very good book about the technological revolution, which is taking place in our society today. It made me to change some of my opinions about the technology. The essays in the book are great because they provide with the current information about the change in the informational age, and in the behaviors of the technology users.

After reading you will understand why there is such a huge division on the use of technology in the 31st century.
