    Just when you think you can't be shocked by anything else, Richa

    Just when you think you can't be shocked by anything else, Richard Shapiro recounts some of the most outlandish Facebook threads circulated on the internet. His witty commentary frames these outrageous social blunders with hilarity. You won't be able to put it down!

    Reviewed by Kristie Ingerto for Readers Favorite

    Richard N. Shapiro has compiled a collection of Facebook posts and added his thoughts about them in his book "Faceplant: Chronicles of Facebook's True Tales & Epic Fails." Divided into thirty-three chapters, this book contains posts and threads that correspond with the posts. One chapter focuses on a picture that was posted of a tattoo that a girl got while on vacation. The tattoo is of her boyfriend who then later breaks up with her in the thread in the midst of comments from friends of both individuals. Another chapter is about a 'Twilight' obsession while another is about dog-fighting, so there is a wide variety of posts included in this collection. Each chapter ends with a "Faceplant Takeaway" which is Shapiro's thoughts and conclusions about the post and thread.

    I found this humor book to be just that - humorous! I am a person who cannot believe some of the things that people share on Facebook for the entire world to see. While some I find sad, others are just entertaining. This book is an entertaining collection that will give anyone a break in a stressful day and bring forth a smile and a laugh. A person can pick up the book, read through a chapter quickly and be in a completely different mindset by the end of the chapter, in just a few minutes! Also, it is a great reminder to be careful about what you post! Shapiro's Takeaways are just about as entertaining as the original posts! A must-read for all Facebook users!

    Good Honest Fun
    Ok, so I was wondering what a faceplant is but now that I’ve read the book I’m pretty sure it should be a new word in the dictionary.  The book tells about a bunch of not so lucky and not so smart peoples adventures using facebook.  Most of the time it doesn’t work out so well for the featured party.  It’s funny and I like the abbreviations for the texting stuff.

    Some of the storys in this book are just too crazy to believe. The story about the Apple store and the FB account is hilarious.

    Guns don’t kill Facebook does
    So how high were some of these people? It’s not as if anyone forces you to post on facebook. They ought to make high school kids read these and stop being so stupid. But of course then we wouldn’t have anything funny to read. Good job!

    Prety interesting read. Quick and easy. Very timely topic too. I have a Facebook account and, after reading this book, am so glad I’ve dodged the “faceplant” bullet so far. Some of my friends haven’t been so lucky ;)

    Its hard to believe what people do on Facebook, but you just shake your head and say wow. I have seen stuff like this in threads on my FB page but this is also like a teaching guide what not to do yourself!
