Everything You Need To Know When You Know You Don't Need To Know EVERYTHING About...: Craigslist
The title pretty much speaks for itself. If you are just joining the internet rat race, or if you are still looking for that ever illusive piece of cheese, this book was created to help you find it faster. Or hopefully a better slice.
This book is meant to be read at your pace and in whatever order you see fit. It is not necessary to know one section or concept, to benifit from another.
About the Author
Social media provocateur. Futurist. Innovator. All of these terms aptly describe Jacob Young, the entrepreneur who recently was named a “Top 50 Entrepreneur” in 2010 for PerfectBusiness.com, an elite group of entrepreneurs, investors and speakers who gather yearly to fund the most promising new business ideas. Jacob’s concept, JobPodTM was designed to streamline the front-end interview function for human resources departments
Other projects in final stage to launch include Limo MagicTM, a unique limousine service, a new character toy and accessory line called ComicsOn UniverseTM, in partnership with Eisner Award-winning comic book artist and #1 Star Wars Artist Dave Dorman, a new company, Young Dorman Media, and final negotiations with the number one ranked advertising firm online, establishing Young Enterprise’s first international reach and exposure to Asia and European countries.
Aside from his business ventures, Jacob Young is a sought after consultant with small, mid-sized and Fortune 500 businesses on cutting-edge Web development, a beta tester for emerging technologies, and an informed-yet-opinionated brand management and marketing expert. As president and CEO of Young Enterprises LLC and its subsidiary, Young Social Media, Jacob Young specializes in SEO--viral and organic optimization—and online reputation management. He has consulted for some of the dotcom and entertainment world’s best-known household names, none of whom he can discuss. A trusted and proven trend spotter, he can discuss where social media, social networking and social marketing will be five years from now, and how to help your brand exploit emerging technologies…most of which he has personally helped develop.
Jacob Young’s heart is in helping not-for-profit organizations raise funds.

Fifty percent of all net profits from his Young Social Media projects are donated to worthy causes and charities.

Jacob Young is working on two social media D-I-Y books, including “You Can Lead a Horse to Water, But You Can’t Make Him Link.” He also has books in progress discussing the not-so-new, yet still emerging field of "Social Media Optimization," and the dangers of email distribution lists. His irreverent new book “I Wrote This Book on the Toilet” is a brain dump of his witticisms and wildly brilliant and innovative ideas. Plans are underway for his “Outside of the Box? There IS No Box!” nationwide tour, getting the rest of the world up to speed on where we are and where we are headed in the social media tsunami.
