More Awesome Than Money

If you’re reading this blog post, you’re online. That means your privacy is vulnerable. MORE AWESOME THAN MONEY, by Jim Dwyer, is full of sometimes scary information about social media, in particular, Facebook.

The subtitle of this expose is “Four Boys and Their Heroic Quest to Save Your Privacy from Facebook.” I have become more and more cautious what I put on social media. After all, there it is, out there for most anyone with access to a computer to see.  Even then, I got the strangest message from a total stranger on Facebook a few weeks ago. This from a guy from England who wanted to meet me because he liked the way I look. I was shocked. Then I received a second message asking me to please respond saying he was a widower with children looking for a relationship. REALLY! So I know that privacy is fleeting no matter how much caution is taken.

Jim Dwyer has written a careful and informative book about four young idealists who actually failed at their attempt to create a more noble social network. Dwyer is the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist who wrote 102 MINUTES. He resides in NYC. He also writes a column called “About New York” for the Times.

I have one copy of MORE AWESOME THAN MONEY, by Jim Dwyer, for giveaway. Please leave a comment below. Only U.S. addresses, and no P.O. boxes, please. I will choose a winner Friday, October 24. Good luck. And thanks go out to Viking publishing, a partner of penguin/random house.
