Reviews

"This is a carefully written and compelling book on a contemporary subject matter. Theoretically rich and highly engaging, Lambert's focus on Facebook as a means to advance/remediate work on intimacy will undoubtedly draw interest from scholars, students and the general public." - Zizi Papacharissi, University of Illinois-Chicago, USA
