If you're looking for THE book to learn the basics of social media - this book is it! Great read, very comprehensive and insightful into the world of social networking, blogging, podcasts and more. Topper clearly has a unique understanding of social media and she helps define the benefits of its uses as well as gives the reader the overall picture of what social media is and why we should use it. If you're a marketing professional or even if you're not, I highly recommend you purchase this book. Also, great for Baby Boomers that want to learn how to better communicate with their children using the Internet. Kudos to the author...Glad to finally see a book like this out there for us beginners!

For someone who is afraid of Social Media and has no idea what they are doing, this is the book for them! I know maybe people who do not have any idea what Facebook, Twitter, Plaxo, etc. are and this is a great book for them to learn what they are about and HOW to set them up. That is the great part - it teaches you how to even set them up. Now you learn and put it together!
My favorite part is the author's "2 Cents" It gives you her take on the site.

For anyone who wants an excellent overview of the multitude of social media websites this is the resource to use! Topper gives excellent summaries plus clearly details the benefits of each site. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of sites that were new to me and the ease at which I understood each website. This is a perfect resource for educators as well as those in the private sector. I can use this reference to determine which sites I want to further investigate and which are clearly not for my purposes. All the information I need packed into this one easy to read and easy to reference book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Being middle aged I've always used the excuse that I missed being completely computer savy by one generation. When in reality I was just making an excuse to put off the innevitable. Then before I knew it all I kept hearing about is Facebook,Twitter,LinkedIn etc, etc. So I knew it was time for me to either step up a attept to learn about this new "Social Media" or decide to fall on the technology wayside and let it and my competition pass me by.
A colleague of mine recommended I try reading Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Social Media But Were Afraid To Ask. I was reluctant to read this at first because I expected it to read like a technical manual. But from the very beginning I was happily surprised at what an easy read it is.
As I progressed through the book I was surprised at how easily it took me a beginner and started teaching me not only all that is available but very simply how to use each site all the while entertaining me. I enjoyed how each site was thoroughly explained and even gave me ideas of which site would work best for me.
So having completed this book I am now known as the go to guy amongst my colleagues for assistance and advice on the different options available. And everytime they ask for my assistance and advice on these options is easy, my advice is to read this book!

I discovered some new social media sites I plan to check out. I definitely recommend this book!

Hillary Topper's social media book really hits the mark. She breaks down the complicated topic of social media and makes it easy to understand and (more importantly) easy to use. I am now much more comfortable using these tools as well as sharing my new found knowledge. Thanks Hilary for putting this together.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
