Explain here that both people and companies/organizations have PAGES on Facebook, and you can friend people and like pages.
I’ll point out the difference between logging in and signing up.
Note here that you can skip this step—friends are perfectly easy to find later.
Note that you don’t HAVE to fill out this information if you don’t feel like disclosing it.
Again, they can skip this part, but FB is usually pretty good at suggesting.
Timeline or Profile page is where you see posts about one person—yourself, or another person if you’re on someone else’s Timeline. When you click on someone’s name, you’ll see their Timeline. Here you can find out more info about the person and see anything they’ve posted lately.
There are two places you can update your status: your Timeline and your News Feed. Statuses are seen by whomever you designate—usually your friends.News Feed: this is where you see all of the posts (statuses, pics, articles, etc.) from your friends.
In this case, I’m sharing a video of the Top 10 Songs of 1984, but you can share photos and other things as well. Some things may not be shareable because of other people’s privacy settings.
If you tag someone, all of their friends will probably see your photo, so be aware of that when tagging.
Uncheck whatever you don’t want to see from this person.
From this page you can edit your privacy settings—but remember that there will still be some posts (things you tag friends in, for instance) that friends of friends will be able to see.
