Now here Only at RM33. Social networking has grown into a staple of modern society, but its continued evolution is becoming increasingly detrimental to our lives. Shifts in communication and privacy are affecting us more than we realize or understand. Terms of Service crystalizes this current moment in technology and contemplates its implications: ● the identity-validating pleasures and perils of online visibility; ● our newly adopted view of daily life through the lens of what is share-worthy; ● and the surveillance state operated by social media platforms—Facebook, Google, Twitter, and others—to mine our personal data for advertising revenue, an invasion of our lives that is as pervasive as government spying. Jacob Silverman calls for social media users to take back ownership of their digital selves from the Silicon Valley corporations who claim to know what's best for them. Integrating politics, sociology, national security, pop culture, and technology, he reveals the surprising conformity at the heart of Internet culture—explaining how social media companies engineer their products to encourage shallow engagement and discourage dissent. Reflecting on the collapsed barriers between our private and public lives, Silverman brings into focus the inner conflict we feel when deciding what to share and what to "like," and explains how we can take the steps we need to free ourselves from its grip. Terms of Service is a terrifying book in many ways. Silverman digs deeply into various social media platforms and uncovers not only privacy violations but also underlying attitudes adopted by the platform owners that point towards a future that is completely controlled by digital government watchdogs and technological elites. I knew some of the pitfalls of the big networks like Facebook, but I didn't know all of them. This book changed the way that I view the portable devices that everyone carries around with them at all times. Instead of helpful tools, I now see that they can be a chilling and impersonal form of control and surveillance, if we let them. Terms of Service isn't all doom and gloom though. Silverman gives the reader innovative ways to buck the bland, over-sharing majority and examples of creative hackers and programmers who are doing just that. He also suggests some sweeping societal changes like a twenty-first century Bill of Rights to address the troubles and privacy challenges of technology and a universal minimum wage to unlock the chains of digital serfdom. It's an exciting possible vision for the future. I wonder if we will ever manage to do any of that.
