Overview

The Making of the Social Network: An Interactive Modern History Adventure by Michael Burgan

It’s a great way to keep in touch with your friends 24/7—even if they live thousands of miles away! But the social network can also expose your life to others in a way you’d never dreamed could happen. Will you: Be a college student who designs a social media site that has the potential to make you a millionaire? Work for a government agency that develops a computer program to monitor people’s social network activity? Join a school club that uses social media to spread its message—but can also use it to hurt and bully others? Experience situations taken from real life. YOU CHOOSE what you’ll do next. The choices you make will either lead you to success—or to failure.
