Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is a comprehensive overview of the theory behind the social networking applied in the electronic space. … Impressive lists of references accompany all chapters, and several chapters offer brief case studies. The book also includes a useful index. This book is a useful resource for academics, educators, researchers, and graduate students, and, to a certain degree, designers, developers, engineers, and practitioners who wish to understand the social network theory background.” (Rita Puzmanova, ACM Computing Reviews, August, 2011)
