You can order it it's still on print but she published aborter book quite recently, I have not read it yet but the reviews were good as always.
She is an excellent writer educated in France and very familiar with Lacan and his theories. She is à psychoanalyst as well.

Thanks Ruth! I translated Turkles book "Life On the Screen" and it was briliant, how she described how the kids and the young deveoped a new culture of communication and multitasking.

TED can make me a bit grumpy sometimes but this from Sherry Turkle
offers a different perspective to the debates around public/private in
social media.

She discusses how social media can effect our capacity for intimacy.

By only showing and performing the smoothest, lightest and most socially
acceptable parts of ourselves within FB and Tw..r and reducing the
opportunities for sharing vulnerabilities and tricky exposing
conversations, she suggests, we become profoundly lonely.

Of course, this is why we persist with messy and joyous and dark forms
like the email list and pervasive art chaos
