Synopsis:

This introduction to Facebook has been written from the ground up with one fast-growing audience in mind: seniors. Not just an ordinary “beginner's book,” My Facebook for Seniors approaches every topic from a senior's point of view, using meaningful examples and realistic tasks. With large text, close-up screen shots, and a custom full-color interior, this easy tutorial is designed to be read comfortably by people with aging eyesight. We assume no prior experience with Facebook, but we don't talk down to you: we know you're smart and engaged, just new to Facebook (like millions of other people)!

 

Michael Miller covers basic Facebook techniques with seniors' needs in mind (focusing on the tasks, features, and activities seniors use most often. He covers all the basics – especially privacy and security – and shows how to:

  • Sign up and get started fast
  • Find both old and new friends, and stay in touch with them
  • Connect with your grandkids (who probably don’t use Facebook the way you do)
  • Update friends and family on your activities (and learn Facebook’s etiquette)
  • View and share family photos and home movies
  • Personalize your Timeline so you see only what you want to see
  • Use Facebook’s messaging system to send private messages
  • Chat with friends and family in real-time – with video if you want it
  • Participate in groups, attend events, and celebrate birthdays
  • Search Facebook for information that’s actually useful
  • Use Facebook apps and play Facebook games
  • Even use Facebook on Your iPhone or iPad, if you have one
