Product Description

Review

"The Facebook Guide for People Over 50 is a fantastic guide to using Facebook aimed at the older generation. It focuses on helping them create a profile, connect with old friends and relatives, communicate with others, and – of course – maintain their safety and privacy online. So if you know someone thinking about joining, or is still a 'newbie' to the site, then this may make for a great gift this holiday season!" (ThatsNonsense.com)

Review

“Today 750 million people — including 50 million Americans ages 45 to 65 — are on Facebook. Many of them are using the social-networking site to plan family reunions, trace family trees, and share family photos. You can, too. Before you get started, spread the word to Facebook holdouts in your family that the site is for all ages, not just for teens and college students. "That's one of the rumors I try to dispel early," says Paul McFedries, 51, author of The Facebook Guide for People Over 50. "Facebook is just a reflection of things we do in our lives anyway. You chat with people, you share photographs, you talk about your trips. You can do all of those things on Facebook, and in most cases, you can do it all a lot easier."”
Karen Springen, Family Goes Strong

HASH(0x97fa5648) out of 5 stars Facebook +50 April 12 2013
By Bobby Glenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
OK book, but I have found a few errors, and worse, information that is incomplete or just not accurate with my experience with Facebook. Some sections are better than others. I found the beginning and orientation section somewhat incomplete or not accurate.

HASH(0x97fa5a74) out of 5 stars still intimidated by Facebook Aug. 13 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This gives me information but not enough to work the program without feeling intimidated. I still am looking for a tutor.

HASH(0x97fa5b94) out of 5 stars A little short from "visual" perspective Dec 8 2013
By Gary Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well written but falls a little short as a "textbook" for those who need a visual format. A good reference book.
HASH(0x97fa5d8c) out of 5 stars the overwhelming pages are social organizations or links that Facebook users may find useful or of interest Sept. 17 2015
By keokebe1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An introductory paperback that gives a quick span of what this social app has to offer, and generally how to delve into the functionality. Be aware that though there may be x number of pages, the overwhelming pages are social organizations or links that Facebook users may find useful or of interest. Actual, dedicated "how to" will not be there for all we neophytes. (E.g., how to place your selected photograph and insert into whatever site you may wish.)
Written concisely, thoughts well communicated, and a good introduction to this popular social app.
Will recommend to beginners such as me, but for more advanced, it is too basic.
