Facebook For Dummies
If you wish to immerse yourself in the world of Facebook but are technologically inept, then you should consider "Facebook for Dummies". Facebook is one of the hottest sites of the internet. Not only does it help people connect with one another, but is also increasingly being used by commercial businesses to connect with their consumers. You should buy "Facebook for Dummies", a help book in the 'dummies' series, to maximize your experience. Written by a pair of Facebook insiders, "Facebook for Dummies" can give you tips, tricks and pointers about using Facebook more effectively.
- Create a Profile. One of the first things you'll have to do once you make a Facebook account is to create a profile. This is a page that can enhance your real-world relationships by showcasing your profile picture, interests, likes, applications, education information, and so much more. Your profile can be as detailed or vague as you wish.
- Share Photos and Messages with friends. Essentially, Facebook is all about connecting with people you know - which is why you should know how to upload pictures and post public (known as 'wall posts') and private messages to your friends.
- Join Networks for your City, School or Work. One essential feature Facebook gives you is the ability to join networks, based on your activities or interests. These can be joined by any member who fits in the category, and are a great way to classify people into groups and make it easier for you to find people you know or meet new people, which is highlighted in "Facebook for Dummies".
- Manage the amount of information you share. As compared to other similar social networks, Facebook has a myriad of privacy settings, making it easy for you to choose exactly what you want to share. This can involve you making friend lists (each of which having a different level of accessibility to your profile) and limiting pictures, videos or other information from them, which is included in "Facebook for Dummies".
