This is the short version - about 30 percent of the text - of "It's Complicated - The Power of Facebook", the main book about all aspects of Facebook in the society of today.

This is in fact the edition for every single Facebook user, to learn how this fantastic, enormous social network is working for us. Why do you enjoy it so much? Which price you pay for using it?

It’s also the perfect guide for parents and grandparents to learn how the social network is dealing with our needs and information. Although the main book "It's Complicated - The Power of Facebook" offers deeper insights, also from sociologists and philosophers.

You will never be again an innocent user of Facebook or any other so-called ‘free service’ on the internet after reading the powerful description of the broad range of aspects of this wonderfully created technology.

At the end you can formulate a clear answer on the question: Take it or leave it? Or maybe: how do we and Facebook have to change in order to keep a happy relationship?
