A Timeless Formula: Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point 

Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point was first published in 2000. When Gladwell wrote his book, there was no Facebook or Twitter. Facebook launched to Harvard students in 2004 and to the general public in 2006, the same year Twitter launched. Now we have so many sharing and social sites, we have to manage our time just for our online personas!
