Between September 2006 and May 2007, the online networking site Facebook doubled its number of visitors to 26 million. Today, it has more than 300 million active users worldwide. Though Facebook is just one tool people use to connect with each other, the myriad of other Web sites such as MySpace and the estimated 2 billion cellphones in use worldwide mean that more people than ever are using digital communication. Digital Communications: From E-mail to the Cyber Community  looks at the digital tools used during interpersonal communication, such as cell phones, electronic mail, chat rooms, and social networking Web sites and how personal Web logs (blogs) and personally produced audio programs (podcasts) can serve to relay messages to the masses. This engaging volume also reveals the dangers of digital communication among people with bad intentions (i.e. spam and scams) and takes a look at future trends in digital communication and the effects of these tools on those people who have grown up with this digital communication access.
