We address Digital Citizenship, searching, and VOIP in a different class (one I do not teach) - Chapters 1 and 5. Many of our students in this course are in mainland China, where Twitter and Facebook are blocked, while Blogger is not available there - chapters 6-8. Overall, I was looking for a book that offered a broader array of Web 2.0 services and did not feel this text met that description.
