How extremely online are you? When you create and consume, who or what is influencing you? Whose voices are being heard, and amplified, and platformed? Who are you giving your attention to, and who’s taking it? And, who’s making money off that? These are just a few questions that tech reporter, columnist and creator Taylor Lorenz wants to get you thinking about in her new book, “Extremely Online The Untold Story of Fame, Influence, and Power on the Internet,” which looks at the rise of the modern social internet and how it created our current digital landscape across information, commerce, and connection.

In this episode of “Your New Life Blend,” host Shoshanna Hecht talks to Taylor about how social media wrested power back from traditional gatekeepers, how women have driven the influencer industry (thank you, monetization), why boundaries are critical (always and forever) and how we can and must push tech companies to be better custodians of our user experience, the information we receive, and our data. Obviously you should share this episode across all platforms.
