Reviews

"Through its clever structure, Disconnect affectively lures the reader as Tero Karppi tells a convincing story of how social media sets the tone, mood, and modality of our everyday existence. Compellingly written, this is a must-read modern tale of engagement and disconnection."-Zizi Papacharissi, author of Affective Publics: Sentiment, Technology, and Politics"Disconnect is a timely, theoretically rich assessment of Facebook as platform and assemblage. Rhetorics of connectivity dominate Silicon Valley, and Tero Karppi helps illuminate and describe the complex, flickering patterns of connection and disconnection that envelop the networked users of such platforms. This is a valuable, accessible guide to the politics and poetics of Facebook."-Amit Ray, Rochester Institute of Technology"Disconnect could not have come at a more important time. Tero Karppi's nuanced writing brings out the rich complexities of social media life and disconnection. This must-read book shows that walking away may not remove Facebook's presence in our lives, but it reveals the limits of social media in our world and the business models that are built to keep us connected."-Jason Farman, author of Delayed Response: The Art of Waiting from the Ancient to the Instant World
