"YourLifeOnline" is a practical handbook to the 'new' internet. Relying increasingly on web-based solutions and removing the need for purchased software, sites in Web 2.0 as it is known are usually based around a single, simple idea and usually encourage social interaction. "YourLifeOnline" is a mini-encyclopedia of these sites and applications. It is the only book on the market that presents the ordinary, non-nerd user with a total picture of the latest developments in internet technology, details what they have to offer and shows you how to make the most of them.
