How to connect with what’s most important in a hyperconnected world.

Social media has the power to do a lot of good, but it can also get in the way of authenticity and create a sense of disillusionment. In Overliked, pastor and author Rob Singleton asks listeners to take a closer look at the optics in their lives and in the world around them. This is an audiobook about understanding how to see “likes” and “selfie” culture for what they really are and how to connect with the heart of God to build out a new way of thinking about social image. We have technology and social tools all at our disposal, but when we recognize that so many in our culture now look for acceptance in how they’re perceived, feel pressure to project something about themselves that isn’t true, or take action based on facts that have been spun, that’s a problem that runs deep.

Singleton shows listeners how to find their way through the complexities by pointing them to God, who created truth, genuine love, and meaningful relationships. Written for those who believe for this generation and the next that they need to get a better handle on what’s real in this culture and in the lives of those they care about, this audiobook brings authenticity and hope to the center of it all. Singleton offers powerful insights into how we can better leverage the information in the world around us without losing who we are. When we begin to see the real us behind the avatars, we gain the clarity we need to live better, love bigger, and become who we were always meant to be.

Overliked Review

Overliked by Rob Singleton is a book very relevant to the age of social media, likes, emojis, and technology.

Social media isn’t evil, Singleton even acknowledges that technology can be enjoyable and has the ability to connect us. However, the way we use it can be toxic for us and others. Singleton states “This book isn’t anti-technology, it’s pro-authenticity.”

With author being the one to narrate his own book, he is able to read in a way that flows well with the intention of the text. The casual tone of the book makes it feel more conversational, almost like a chat over coffee with your dad or a mentor sharing his insight.

The first portion of the book draws heavily on culture, using experiences from Rob’s own life, football, and other cultural references. The latter portion of the book delves into scripture, spending a lot of time in the turbulent and exciting life of David.

I don’t necessarily agree with everything Singleton says or every use of scripture, but the principles he shares are valuable. At the end of each chapter, he offers a place to respond and reflect on the topic he discusses.

The evangelical youth pastor will probably enjoy reading Overliked and sharing Singleton’s insights with students. The principles employed in by Singleton can be used on or off social media and the authenticity he encourages applies to many facets of life.

I received compensation in exchange for a fair and honest review

Couldn’t have come at a better time

This book is perfect for this time in our lives. It speaks to how big of an impact social media has, and “likes” by people many of us don’t even know can control our life. Putting out the touched up image vs. our true story. Pastor Rob Singleton tells it like it is, and that true relationships with those that we know and love are much more important than those that “like” us on line. But ultimately it our relationship with our creator that is the most important relationship we should have. Technology is great, but we need to ensure we use it for good and not in the ways it’s being used so often.
