"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)
“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."”

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.
