Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Is social media changing us into impatient, inarticulate adolescents or are we all becoming multimedia savants? As the marketing director of Facebook, Randi Zuckerberg saw the world up close from both sides; now, as the founder and keeper of Dot Complicated newsletter and blog, she mentors those who want to get their footing in the ever-shifting digital scene. Dot Complicated the book helps readers navigate through strange terrains including networking, etiquette, privacy, online presence, and the future of social connections. (P.S. Randi Zuckerberg is well-situated to be social media savvy: This youthful, interactive woman is the sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.)

Charlene Li
“Randi Zuckerberg provides a valuable and much-needed guide to navigating the stormy seas of social and digital media. You couldn’t ask for a better guide than Randi who has been at the front line of social media from the start.”
Kathleen Kennedy
“For all that current technology has done to improve and simplify our lives, it has undeniably complicated the way we communicate and relate to those around us. Randi’s experience and perspective provide the perfect guide to socially navigating the digital age.”
Ron Conway
“With impeccable timing, Zuckerberg discusses the hot button issues of the moment and shows us how to use technology to bring positive change to the world. Dot Complicated is a great roadmap in navigating the evolving universe of social media.”
Jennifer Aaker
Dot Complicated is entertaining, insightful, and relevant. Randi Zuckerberg shows us how using technology and social media mindfully can help create lasting meaning in our lives.”
Tina Seelig
“If you want an entertaining peek into the formative days at Facebook, start here. Randi candidly shares her personal story as an early employee, navigating the complicated space between her personal life and her public persona.”
Ashton Kutcher
“Randi has had a front row seat to the shift of a social culture. Dot Complicated offers insights to the way the world is changing and the tech sensibility you will need to navigate this new dynamic.”
Leslie Blodgett
“Randi Zuckerburg eloquently captures the art of doing it all (including disconnecting) in the digital age. Before you send one more text, you MUST read this book. It’s high time to take charge of our technology devices before they take charge of us.”
