How to work Facebook
Facebook is one of the largest social networks used today. It is a good way to connect with old friends, and meet new people as well. Facebook is mostly used by the younger generation because they can get adapt to it quicker, but can be just as convenient and useful to the older generation to. There are three steps on what will get people started and comfortable on using Facebook.
Signing up for Facebook is the first step in getting started. Facebook is free and you have to be 13 to make an account. You go to www.facebook.com to sign up. There is a green button that in the top right corner that says Sign Up. When you click that Sign Up link it will direct you to a registration page. At that point you have to put in your information such as first name, last name, birth date, email, and a password. Your email will be your username that you will use to log into Facebook. If your email is correct and your password is useable you will get an email confirming your information. At that point you are officially registered into Facebook.
The second step into using Facebook is updating your information. During this step this is information that people will use to verify that this is your page. Facebook will automatically direct you to this page as soon as you register on Facebook. Any other time that you would have to update your profile there is a link on your wall in bold black letters. While updating this info you will insert a picture of yourself or of your choice, add your birthday, your hometown, what school you are attending or graduated from, your employer, and any other information that you want people to know.
The last step in getting started in Facebook is looking for friends. The whole purpose for Facebook is interacting with other people. After you update your profile you will then be directed to adding friends. At this point it is all about who you know...
