  1. No Added Benefit to Facebook Online Documentation I came to Facebook reluctantly as a mid-life professional. I have a different standard of privacy, it seems, that many of my younger colleagues. Nevertheless, I realized the powerful potential of reaching close to 1 billion active users, in terms of my business. Although I had been an IT professional in the past, I found many of Facebook’s idiosyncracies the opposite of user-friendly or intuitive, and the documentation provided on Facebook is sparse and confusing at best. I decided I needed “Facebook for Dummies”. However, I was very disappointed. I found it very poorly written, and it did not address the really core questions I had, like, “what is the difference between my wall and my news feed”. Some of the information is there, but organized poorly and hard to access. Doing a Google search I found some free resources that did a great job of teasing these issues out and making them clear: and they’re free. For example, I found one that was written for real estate professionals that taught me more in five minutes than reading this entire book. I would say don’t waste your money. Check out third-party documentation written for professionals, and forget this book.

  2. Facebook for Dummies I had high hopes for this book but was a little disappointed. It was the newest addition but it did not cover a lot of my questions, maybe because Facebook updated their site again. I really do think there are no good answers available anywhere. This was my second purchase of tutorials and I am still in the dark. My not spending a lot of time on Facebook contributes but if I knew more I would be on more. Sounds like going in circles doesn’t it. End result …. no good books available.

    Need More Info. I’ll be the 1st 1 to admit my computer & I don’t get along. I’m seriously techno. challenged. Out of desperation, I purchased this book & was so excited when it arrived. Needless to say, I’ve torn thru this book looking for desperate help, but am still having touble. I think I need a Sesame Street version or need a kid to teach me. I don’t know if the challenge is me or the book, but I’ll keep plugging away at it.
