About Nate Hoffelder (11474 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. #1 Facebook members are not customers. The customers are the companies benefiting from ad content and data mining. The facebook users are the product.

    #5 The only example provided is Harry Potter. The article does not provide sufficient evidence that this is a trope. It makes a waste of time even for YA readers. BTW expecting YA to depict relationships in a mature fashion is contradictory. If a YA novel did it would not be YA.
