Buy my new book during this three day surge July 11, 12, 13 while special Kindle and Nook pricing is available - only $9.99. I need your support to spike sales... but most importantly the book is very valuable and important reading, especially if you have college age children or employ recent college grads. See comments from Sir Martin Sorrell, Ken Burns and others below.
Hooked Up: A New Generation's Surprising Take on Sex, Politics and Saving the World tells you why today's college students may prove to be the next Great Generation and possibly the greatest generation of the 21st century. The Hooked Up Generation -- hooked on the Internet, hooked together by the Internet, and hooking up in relationships managed and defined by the Internet -- will make you hopeful about the future. The Hooked Up Generation was born into two decades of disruption, technological acceleration, economic collapse, social upheaval, political polarization and a war on terror, but is destined to lead the world into a transcendental period of tolerance and peace, social balance and economic growth. My book explains how this generation will redefine and reinvent marketing, entertainment, media, politics, religion, education and much more. Watch the video here.

These Internet Pioneers, born between 1991 and 1995, are not like us. They absorbed the Internet like a native language while the rest of us struggled to learn it. Any time now, these pioneers will be commanding the agenda — and we'd better understand them. Hooked Up is the best guide to the future that I've yet come across.
~ Geraldine Laybourne, former Nickelodeon president comments:
Who cares about 17-21 year olds? Jack Myers does, and you should too if you want a front row seat on where the future of business and civilization is going.
~ Ken Burns, Filmmaker comments:
Once again, Jack Myers has his fingers on the pulse on the very latest, the impulses of the kids who will one day run the whole show, and he has the statistics to back up his cogent insights. This is by turns an absorbing, disturbing and ultimately indispensable account of a hugely misunderstood demographic group that will shape our future. Myers clearly has done his homework and the result is this superb study
~ Lorraine Branham, Dean, S.I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University, comments:
At the Newhouse School, we are living with the Hooked Up Generation and experiencing the extraordinary transformation that Jack Myers has brilliantly captured. This is a must read for educators, parents and all those who care about the next generation of leaders.
~ Mary Brabeck, Dean of the Steinhardt School, New York University comments:
The Hooked Up Generation is rewriting feminism, sexuality, politics, education, language, relationships, and media. This accessible and fascinating book brings new insights into how our cyber-society is shaping a captivating generation. The message is clear: the Hooked Up Generation offers hope for the future of our planet.
~ Monique L. Nelson, CEO of UniWorld Group, comments:
Jack's book is incredibly eye opening. It's an important read for all generations as we embark on a journey into unchartered territory and extraordinary experiences, full of breaking cultural norms and establishing a new normal.
It is generally acknowledged that “engagement” is a good thing. It is better, at every level if your message (whatever form that takes) is not only “seen” (whatever that means) by a large number of people, but that a good number of those people choose to do something that approximates to actually reading it, hearing it or viewing it and furthermore that they indicate that they have done so in some way or other. The problem with the notion of engagement is that there are almost as many definitions as there are conferences on the subject.Read More
It's no joke that fake traffic, bogus publishers and invisible Web visitors are real threats to legitimate digital media companies, publishers and the brands that advertise online. A recent headline in AdAge put a fine point on it: The Amount of Questionable Online Traffic Will Blow Your Mind. And it's true - there are a lot of unscrupulous ad exchanges chasing bogus clicks and trading in junk page-views. So much activity, in fact, that it has its own acronym now: NHT (Non-Human Traffic). But there's also a simple fix – and it doesn't involve sophisticated fraud algorithms or new technology to thwart bots. And all of us can make it happen.Read More
