Review: Friend Me!: 600 Years of Social Networking in America

Friend Me!: 600 Years of Social Networking in America
Friend Me!: 600 Years of Social Networking in America by Francesca Davis DiPiazza
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Very interesting analysis of various sorts of networking used in different social groups. It’s written quite well, and reads easy – which would make a great resource of middle grade and young adult, though I think the presentation of these networks are a bit randomized, though it’s clear that it progresses in a chronological order. There are discussions of social networks among Native American tribes, slaves, and eventually the book delves a little bit into the influence of contemporary networks such as Facebook. It was still a good resource to use for introductory measures, and I certainly consider it valuable read.

Overall: 3/5

Note: I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher Lerner Publishing Group/Twenty-First Century Books.
