As part of the Dot Complicated blogger crew I am happy to showcase Randi Zuckerberg’s new book Dot Complicated – Untangling Our Wired Lives. You might have seen our interview with Randi Zuckerberg on dandelion moms. She led the marketing efforts at Facebook during its growth from 2005 to 2011, alongside her famous brother, Mark Zuckerberg, but left to start her own media company called Zuckerberg Media. After she started a family she was inspired to form the new online community, Dot Complicated. Dot Complicated was created by Zuckerberg and began earlier this year as an online community that discusses all the ways technology is intertwined into our daily lives. Her goal is to help people learn how to cope with this new digital world in such a way that we embrace these technological advances yet find balance in our lives. You can find interesting articles that help busy moms and dads cope with these changes and offers suggestions on apps and devices that can help you in your every day life.
She wrote two books, Dot Complicated and Dot. – a children’s book – that will be released November 5th through Harper Collins. Her children’s book Dot. was inspired by her two year old sons’ love of anything electronic. I can definitely relate to that because my daughter would be happy as pie if I would let her sit and play Minecraft all day on the iPad! In fact she is trying to convince me to home-school her next year because I think she thinks she can sit on the iPad all day! Hmmm… kids! Randi says “I was inspired to write Dot after talking with parents around the world. I found that although technology is making our lives easier and helping keep us connected, many parents are worried about how to raise their children in this new digital era.” (Source.DotComplicated.com)
Dot Complicated – Untangling Our Wired Lives, is part memoir, part how-to manual and addresses issues of privacy, online presence, networking, etiquette, and the future of social change.
