The Circle by Dave Eggers [2013]

This is a fantastic dystopian novel I read over the summer about a near future in which life is dominated by The Circle, a sort of Facebook / Google hybrid. The funny thing is that the world of likes and zings that Eggers creates is almost indistinguishable from the way in which I understand that people use social media. In this world, experiences are invalid unless they are digitally shared.  A gripping story as well.
