What is Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks?
Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks is a pretty interesting book that isn´t explicitly about social media networks, although it does go through that as well. I would say that the book is more about the foundations of how people behave, interact and attach to each other in the world. If that behavior is online or offline doesn’t really matter.
I haven’t summarized chapter 5 and 6 since I didn’t find very much interesting there. The summary of Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks is in total 17 pages and most of the notes come from the beginning of the book. I would say that these notes are great if you´re looking for an introduction to network theory. If you are an advanced user, you´re probably better off reading the book by yourself and pick your own diamonds. You always benefit more from doing your own note since you are creating achors in your head while underlining. This makes i much easier to remember the vital parts of the book.
