  1. 1. Presented by the Monroe County Public Library
  2. 2. Introductions Austin Stroud – Instructional designer at the Monroe County Public Library and adjunct faculty at Ivy Tech Community College. I teach Library Technology and a First Year Seminar on how to be successful in college/life in general. I have been a user of Facebook since September 2004. Are you currently on Facebook? Regardless if you are or not, what do you know about it? What do you think it is for? Even some dogs are on Facebook!
  3. 3. What is Facebook? Facebook is defined as “a social networking website intended to connect friends, family, and business associates. It is the largest of the networking sites” (WiseGeek, 2012). Facebook was launched on February 4, 2004 by Harvard sophomore Mark Zuckerberg. It originally was only open to Harvard students, but slowly expanded to other colleges before opening to everyone (Business Insider, 2010). Mark (pictured to the right) is a billionaire, and still only 28 years old.
  4. 4. What can I use Facebook for? Connect with friends, new and old Stay in touch with family Entertainment (games, sharing funny pictures, etc.) News (you can follow your favorite news outlets) Chatting (Facebook has an instant messenger built into it) Business (create a page for your business) Advertising (create Facebook ads or sponsored posts)There are a growing number of features that continue to be addedto Facebook, but this is just to name a few.
  5. 5. What do I need to get started? A valid email address is it for the most part. You can setup a free email account at a number of websites on the Internet, including: gmail.com, yahoo.com, and hotmail.com. You must be at least 13 years of age. Some kids lie about their age to create a Facebook account (not a good idea unless closely monitored by a parental guardian).Full Facebook legal terms can be viewed here:http://www.facebook.com/legal/terms
  6. 6. Registering for Facebook Open up the Internet browser of your choice (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, etc.) Go to http://www.facebook.com Your screen should look similar to as you see below:
  7. 7. Video Tutorials Next, I am going to show you a series of video tutorials from Lynda.com that will step you through the registration process and some of Facebook’s key features.
