Overview

So you’ve heard about Facebook—maybe your friends have invited you to join or it’s the hot topic around the water cooler—but you’re not sure what it’s all about. Relax and join in. There are more than 110 million members of Facebook these days, and adults are the fastest-growing segment of users. And it’s about more than just kid stuff; Facebook can actually be a good business tool as well as a great way to promote creative projects. In Facebook Me! Dave Awl shows you around the newly redesigned Facebook and helps you take full advantage of all it has to offer, while helping you avoid some of its pitfalls.

• Find out what you can do on Facebook, and what it can do for you. Reconnect with old friends and make new ones, let your friends know what you’re up to, send greetings, share photos or video, or just goof around with applications like SuperPoke.

• Learn Facebook etiquette: how and why to friend someone, how to socialize politely, and whether to friend your boss.

• Publicize your projects, business, or causes: Post to your Wall, set up a Page, put up a Marketplace listing, or invite friends to Events.

Look for the official Facebook Me! Group on Facebook, to connect with the author and other readers of this book.

    Great for Facebook newbies and veterans!

    We all know that Facebook is the hottest thing since maybe Friendster (anyone remember that?) or MySpace (does anyone go there anymore?), and unfortunately, Facebook constantly reinvents itself.

    Whether you are logging on to Facebook for the first time, or are a pro, "Facebook Me!" will teach you some valuable tips and tricks on how to maximize your usage. The author takes the novice user through ever aspect of Facebook including a heavy emphasis on privacy and security. In particular, Awl's book will survive most Facebook interface changes because he focuses on the core values of why you are on Facebook and what you hope to accomplish. He handles such tricky issues as friending your boss and coworkers as well as to how to deal with friends who send you invites to every application known to man.

    Awl gives great advice to new users on how to follow proper social mores on Facebook as well as how to prevent getting viruses on it. Experienced users will benefit from Awl's suggestions on topics such as how often and what to say in status updates and most important, how to check Facebook from work. Business owners in particular will benefit from this book's excellent explanation of pages, groups, and advertising on Facebook.

    The book is extremely well organized so more experienced users can focus on the subject that interest them the most. A detailed table of contents helps readers hone in on their particular topics of interest and excellent use of color screen shots helps everyone visualize his descriptions. Although Facebook will surely redesign it's interface and the pictures will then look different, the concepts of keeping up with friends and acquaintances are at the core of Facebook. Awl's book is about how to use Facebook effectively, not merely a "how to" guide.

    Pros: Well organized, detailed, perfect for novices and experienced users
    Cons: Still doesn't tell me whether I should friend my Mom or not

    Some good stuff, but becomes obsolete quick

    This book gives good tips for anyone learning to use Facebook. Goes over the various features and how to use them. The book admits that Facebook is an everchanging application and much of the content is already out of date. Great tool to inspire you to learn about the program, if you get overwhelmed by all the various tools. Better used as a light reference when needed.

    Well written but obsolete

    Facebook made significant changes since this book was published, many of the recommendations do not work. The book is well written and well illustrated, it is just obsolete.
