Senior_smiling-LR.jpgWith everyone moving away for new jobs or other opportunities, you’re always looking for new ways of keeping touch with old friends and your treasured family. Originally, Facebook only allowed college students to join but now, you can join and stay up to date on all of your friends and family’s latest news. How to use Facebook is easy with these simple explanations.


Your first step is to create your own account. When you visit the Facebook home page, you just need to fill in some basic details about yourself. This includes your name, birthday, email and gender. Facebook helps protect your security by requiring you to confirm your account. With the email they sent, you can follow the instructions and confirm your account.



You don’t want everyone on the internet to know your personal information, thoughts and opinions so set up your privacy settings when you log into Facebook the first time. On the top right-hand side of your news feed, look for the question mark. After clicking on it, select Privacy Checkup from the drop-down menu and just follow the easy instructions.


Friends and Family

Without friends and family connections, Facebook isn’t that impressive. To start, grant Facebook access to your email contacts so that the program can find any matching email addresses on Facebook. Next, enter the name of your friends and family into the search box at the top of the page. Once you find someone who you want to share your Facebook information with just click on Add Friend on their Facebook page.


Follow Pages

Your favorite writer, company, television show and other businesses have Facebook pages where they share information. When you click Like on their page, you see their updates in your news feed. You can start out by liking AARP and Caring Senior Services.


Status Update

With the basics out-of-the-way, it’s time to create your first status. You can tell people about your amazing golf game, a great movie you just saw or the upcoming visit to your son’s house. Start by finding the box that says, What’s on Your Mind. Just type what you want everyone to know in that box. Finish by clicking on Post.
