What The Circle by Dave Eggers is about:
The Circle is like Facebook and Google combined. It links everything a person does online with their universal operating system, giving users one online identity. The Circle is setting the lines for the future of the internet and society. In the future that The Circle envisions everyone can watch everyone all the time. They want full transparency. The purpose of this, they say, is accountability. What seems like an idea to improve society quickly turns into a nightmare as privacy disappears and social stigma reigns supreme.
