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.

Read this book to discover how grown-ups can take advantage of everything Facebook has to offer. It’s not just for kids anymore!

Facebook for Grown-Ups

 on May 15, 2011
By D. E. Forrester
I am happy with this book as it has taught me a lot of things I did not know about Facebook. I was particularly interested in learning how to add pictures to Facebook.

Great for older newbies to the net

If you are seriously into social networking, this isn’t your book.

Nice to have instructions in writing

I am a 61 year old Facebook holdout. I get frequent emails requesting my participation. There are offers from companies I use that can only be accessed if I have a Facebook account. Yet, I still resist. I saw this book and decided to at least educate myself about it. I still may not open an account, but at least I will know more about what I am choosing to miss out on.

Explains the basics as well as tools to protect your privacy. (Teens need not apply)

With the world connecting digitally like never before, Face Book (and it’s younger cousin Twitter) are in the news (and on the big screen in The Social Network). Like those “For Dummies” books on everything from gardening to estate planning, there had to be a simple book explaining Facebook to the uninitiated. This book tries and – mostly succeeds- at that.

Though Large Print for our fading grown ups, it covers a lot of ground

The large print is one of the first things I noticed about this book and it led me to question, since this was called ‘Grown-Ups’ that my nearly fifty year old eyes must be failing as well as those this book is targeted at. But my eyes are not that bad for reading. Driving is another story.

For the Facebook novice, or for those unfamiliar with the site

Sure, some of the information in Michael Miller’s Facebook for Grown Ups is a bit basic for someone who has used Facebook or been on the internet a thousand times, but for those unfamiliar with the ins and outs of the site or are skeptical about joining social networks this book offers useful information in navigating Facebook as well as understanding its many options and applications. The book is divided into 6 major sections, with the first few sections being fairly commonplace and simple (how to get started on Facebook, finding friends on Facebook, keeping in touch on Facebook, messages, etc) and then being a little more involved (networking, using Facebook for jobs, sharing/ uploading movies and pictures, using applications on the site).

Very Helpful for People New to Facebook

 on June 9, 2011
By Reader from Washington, DC
“Facebook for Grown-Ups” is a very helpful book for people over 40 who have not yet created a Facebook account and would like to do so. The book is a detailed, carefully illustrated guide on how to create a Facebook account and use it for many different purposes.

Very DETAILED information for people who don’t know much about computers.

I’m on Facebook at least a few times a day. I thought great maybe there is something I don’t know about it. I was wrong. This is a step by step detailed book of how to do everything from setting up your account to selling things in the marketplace. I did actually follow some of the steps and found them not what Facebook currently has. For example how to remove things you have said you “like”. I followed the instructions but the screens are not as shown or worded. That being said it was close enough for me to translate to the update. If you are computer savy then this is really below you.
