What Does the Digital You Look Like?
What you read • Where you shop • How you communicate with coworkers, friends, and strangers • Whom you interact with on social networking sites . . . these are just a few of the things that make up the Digital You.
"The Digital You is a complex mosaic of habit, subconscious acts of both omission and commission, and premeditated presentations. It is how our peers and friends, bosses and family actually experience us, as ever more of our lives in the real world takes place in the digital one. The purpose of this book and the associated software . . . is to help you begin to experience your Digital You in the same way that everyone around you does." -- From e-Habits, by Elizabeth Charnock
