Karppi, Tero

Disconnect: facebook's affective bonds - Minneapolis : University of Minnesota Press, 2018 - 184 p. : 22 cm.

Includes bibliographical references and index

"No matter how pervasive and powerful social media websites become, users always have the option of disconnecting—right? Not exactly, as Tero Karppi reveals in this disquieting book. Pointing out that platforms like Facebook see disconnection as an existential threat—and have undertaken wide-ranging efforts to eliminate it—Karppi argues that users’ ability to control their digital lives is gradually dissipating" -- Amazon.com.
