About the Author

Nancy Baym is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research and was formerly Professor of Communication Studies at the University of Kansas.


"In this lucid yet learned book, Nancy Baym covers a breadth of analysis on whether and how the internet and mobile communication are reconfiguring our identities and personal relationships. While recognising the many continuities in our social life from offline to online, she also notes some signs of optimism, showing how we may yet build new, perhaps better, personal connections in the digital age." Sonia Livingstone, London School of Economics and Political Science
