Presents a guide for adults on the features of Facebook, covering such topics as opening an account, finding friends, posting status updates, sharing photos, joining a business network, creating groups, and using games and applications.


Facebook started out as a social network for high school and college kids. But now grown-ups like you are getting connected, too — even if you use Facebook much differently than your kids do. If you’re a grown-up looking to join the Facebook bandwagon, Facebook for Grown-Ups is just the guide you need. You’ll learn how to use Facebook to reconnect with  old friends and family members and keep them up-to-date on what’s happening in your life.


Facebook for Grown-Ups shows you how to open a Facebook account, find new friends, post status updates, and share family photos and videos. You’ll learn how to become a fan of your favorite performers, join a business network, and create your own topic-specific groups. And if you’re worried about privacy, Facebook for Grown-Ups shows you how to keep your personal information from becoming public knowledge. You’ll even learn how to keep track of what your kids are doing on Facebook — without them knowing it.


This revised and updated edition shows you how to best use Facebook's new Timeline profile page. You'll learn how to customize your Timeline, edit and highlight events, and add your own personal cover image.
