Facebook claims that it is building a global community. Whether this sounds utopian, dystopian, or simply self-promotional, there is no denying that social-media platforms have altered social interaction, political life, and outlooks on the world, even for people who do not regularly use them. In this book, Roberto Simanowski takes Facebook as a starting point to investigate our social-media societyand its insidious consequences for our concept of the self.

Simanowski contends that while they are often denounced as outlets for narcissism and self-branding, social networks and the practices they cultivate in fact remake the self in their image. Sharing is the outsourcing of ones experiences, encouraging unreflective self-narration rather than conscious self-determination.Facebook Society describes how we let our lives become episodic autobiographies whose real author is the algorithm lurking behind the interface. As we go about accumulating more material for the network to arrange for us, our sense of self becomes diminishedand Facebook shapes the kind of subject who no longer minds. Social-media companies relentless pursuit of personal data for advertising purposes presents users with increasingly targeted, customized information, attenuating cultural memory and collective identity in an emergent digital nation. Instead of experiencing the present, we are stuck ceaselessly documenting and archiving it. Presenting a creative, philosophically informed perspective that wields its erudition to speak to a shared reality,Facebook Society asks us to come to terms with the networked world for our own sake and for all those with whom we share it.
