Social activist and media guru Deanna Zandt proclaims, “Don’t let your fear of social networks keep you from joining in the conversation.” She explains that the new ecosystem developing online needs everyone’s voice to be healthy. A diverse group, she believes, must engage online, sharing their stories, experiences and opinions. Zandt’s easy-to-understand, conversational style helps dispel some of the fear surrounding new technologies, as do the resources, tips and tactics she includes in the closing chapters.
