When author Don Beck walked into the offices of Involver, a social media startup, as their new CEO in June of 2011, he had no idea what to expect. He was rich with confidence, but lacked experience as a first-time CEO in a technology industry that was dynamically changing every day. For Beck, the task was daunting, but equally exciting. In Social Media Survivor, Beck tells the roller coaster ride of running Involver, a tenure that led to its sale in July of 2012 to Oracle. As a seasoned fifty-five-year-old veteran of the high-tech industry, he had to bridge the generation gap between the sixty employees who were young and extremely talented; each one of them was under the age of thirty and had forgotten more about the social marketing industry than Beck had learned. Beck shares the highs and lows of leading a small, but fast-growing social media marketing company in a competitive industry that changed quickly. Every day brought new challengesnot only within the company, but industry wide. Social Media Survivor tells the story of a high-tech entrepreneur and how his perseverance paid off. It provides keen insight into what its like to be the CEO of a hot, fast-growing social media startup.

Digital Gender-Sexual Violations

This groundbreaking book argues that the fundamental issues around how victim-survivors of digital gender-sexual violations (DGSVs) are abused can be understood in terms of gender and sexual dynamics, constructions, positioning and logics. The book builds upon Hall and Hearn's previous work, Revenge Pornography, but has been substantially reworked to examine other forms of DGSV such as upskirting and sexual deepfakes, as well as the latest research and debates in the field. Facilitated by developments in internet and mobile technologies, the non-consensual posting of real or fake sexually explicit images of others for revenge, entertainment, homosocial status or political leverage has become a global phenomenon. Using discourse and thematic analytical approaches, this text examines digital, survey and interview data on gendered sexual violences, abuses, and violations. The words of both the perpetrators and victim-survivors are presented, showing the impact on victim-survivors and the complex ways in which phallocentric power relations and existing hegemonic masculinities are reinforced and invoked by perpetrators to position girls and women as gendered and sexualised commodities to be traded, admired, violated or abused for the needs of individual men or groups of men. Hall, Hearn and Lewis explore their research in a broader social and political context, evaluating and suggesting changes to existing legislative frameworks, education, victim support, and practical and policy interventions against DGSV, along with wider political considerations. This is a unique resource for students, academics and researchers as well as professionals dealing with issues around digital gender-sexual violations.
