I’ve never hidden the fact that I don’t think very much of social media or social networks (the social web is another matter) and that for the most part it is nothing more than just another way for marketers to get all slimey and make you believe that social media is the great social changer.
With this in mind I came across a book by Ryan Holiday titled “Trust Me, I’m Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator” and if there ever was an insider book to read this is it, especially when it comes to social media and blogging. It’s an honest look at just how easily the whole blogging industry can be manipulated and a thoroughly enjoyable book to read; even if you do feel like taking a shower afterwards.
You can pick it up on Amazon in print, Kindle, or audio book format; and I don’t very often recommend books but if you are a blogger, or even someone interested in social media, you should maybe give this a good read.
