Synopsis: Social media gives each of us enormous power to influence others for good or ill. But far too many Christians ignore the opportunities and undermine their own reputations through thoughtless words shared online. This book comes directly from the author's experiences as an attorney and a church leader and offers seven simple guidelines for exercising Biblical wisdom in social media.

Thoughts: **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

While this is obviously a Christian book, it offers a lot of good common sense for dealing with social media. The author provides some great real life examples,as well as quotes and pop culture references. All of those things together make this a quick, easy read.

The seven principles the author chose to focus on in this book are as follows:

Think before you post.
To your own self be true.
Guard your heart.
Don't miss the forest for the trees.
Don't be a stumbling block.
Be a peacemaker.
Build genuine community

If we all tried to follow these principles while on our social media sites, and in our everyday life, the world would be a much better place.

My rating: Four stars
