This is the users’ manual for the "new" Facebook

 on November 10, 2009
By L. F. Smith
This newly revised, 2009 edition is the missing– actually non-existent– users’ manual for the “new” facebook. Some of the previous reviews were written about the first edition, which is, as the reviewers say, indeed obsolete.

Worth every penny and then some……

Because of this book, I am no longer reluctant to post things on Facebook (a fear likely NOT shared by the younger generation). I especially like the author’s explanations, repeatedly, about using the various privacy settings, and how to reveal ‘only what you want to reveal’ to different levels of friends and the general public. The author’s insider explanation of how things are structured on Facebook was so welcome. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to participate in the Facebook experience, but was afraid to try. Participating in Facebook has helped me understand the younger members of our extended family, a little glimpse here, a sentence there – it is wonderful. It also has allowed me to share ordinary moments or thoughts that happen in our physically extended family. You now can check, see a post on Facebook that they made, and be reassured that even though you haven’t spoken to them in a little while, all is still fine with them. I find that very comforting.

Simple and precise…

Very easy to read and understand. Short,, but gets to the point in most chapters. Highly recommend for the beginner like me.

Amazon made it possible for me to have a “manual” that I need to function with my friend-base. Every time I use it I send gratitutde for the low price, good condition, and expeditious delivery.
