You Posted What!? was one of the first books to describe how startups were disrupting education and the employment process in 2014.
In the book, Tiffany discusses how companies and universities use digital technology to make decisions about which individuals are accepted, which receive scholarships, loans, or hired. Although some of the startups in the book have changed, the information is still relevant today in 2020.
Our social media profiles have replaced resumes and are a powerful marketing tool when used wisely. Colleges and employers are using information from your teen’s social media profile and Internet postings to search for talented students and to weed out students that could present a liability.
The observations Tiffany discussed are now impacting students, higher education, and employment. With the advancement of artificial intelligence, the use of data and digital technology will continue to accelerate.

“As a high school digital media/communications teacher I found the book to be full of useful information for my students and their families! An enjoyable read to give yourself a base knowledge of the usage of social media by students. The book is written in a way that it is interesting and full of info for various levels of understanding. Not just for parents… for students… schools… families! Worth the read.”
