Wednesday Wanna-Read: The Status of All Things

Nearly everyone has a Facebook account. But what if your status updates actually changed the way your world was?

That’s the premise set out by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke in The Status of All Things.

From the Goodreads page for the book: “ What if you could create your picture-perfect life? Would you be happy? Would you still be you?”

These are all questions we’re sure to ponder as we read this book.

There have been studies conducted which indicate that people put their best selves forward online and others can feel even more depressed about their own life because of the seemingly perfect lives displayed on social media by those around them.

However, who is really going to post on Facebook or Twitter about the super awful fight they had with their significant other? Or about the slow degradation of a friendship?

This book really appears to explore what would happen if we had the ability to create our “perfect” world through our Facebook posts.

With an average rating of more than 3.5 stars, this book sounds like a fun read to keep summer going just a little bit longer.
