Mia, in addition to students, the intended audiences are the intelligent 
general reader as well as scholars. My guess is that you fit in 2 of those 
3 categories.

>> Daily life is connected life, its rhythms driven by endless email pings and
>> responses, the chimes and beeps of continually arriving text messages, tweets
>> and retweets, Facebook updates, pictures and videos to post and discuss. Our
>> perpetual connectedness gives us endless opportunities to be part of the
>> give-and-take of networking.
>>
>> Some worry that this new environment makes us isolated and lonely. But in
>> Networked, Lee Rainie and Barry Wellman show how the large, loosely knit social
>> circles of networked individuals expand opportunities for learning, problem
>> solving, decision making, and personal interaction. The new social operating
>> system of "networked individualism" liberates us from the restrictions of
>> tightly knit groups; it also requires us to develop networking skills and
>> strategies, work on maintaining ties, and balance multiple overlapping
>> networks. Rainie and Wellman outline the "triple revolution" that has brought
>> on this transformation: the rise of social networking, the capacity of the
>> Internet to empower individuals, and the always-on connectivity of mobile
>> devices. Drawing on extensive evidence, they examine how the move to networked
>> individualism has expanded personal relationships beyond households and
>> neighborhoods; transformed work into less hierarchical, more team-driven
>> enterprises; encouraged individuals to create and share content; and changed
>> the way people obtain information. Rainie and Wellman guide us through the
>> challenges and opportunities of living in the evolving world of networked
>> individuals.
