This text tackles online social networks, by navigating these systems from the birth to the death of the digital self. The author begins by examining the creation of a virtual identity in online networks popularized by websites such as Facebook and Myspace. The book subsequently explores how the social self is intrinsic to how social, cultural and professional relationships are discovered, forged and maintained. The text journeys through the popular criticisms of social networking such as employee time-wasting, bullying, stalking, the alleged links between social networks and suicide and the decline of a user¿s public image. The dissonance between the performance of the virtual and non-virtual selves, and the 'offline¿ issues that can ensue, are contextualized by the 'social¿ nature of these online networks. The discussion of this digital life ends by addressing the intricacies of becoming 'web dead¿, which explores how a user removes their identity, with finality, from social networks and the entire web.
