Pornography, offensive or violent photos are not allowed on the social media site. The new Facebook design allows for users to organize their posts and personal information on a timeline sort of design.
You can also add a big banner on top of your Facebook profile. When you are finish setting up the registration part of the account, try and fill out more details about yourself. This will make it easier for your friends or family to find you. You don’t have to publicize all your personal information, and Facebook has privacy settings to help protect you. All in all, Facebook does a very great job protecting and making its users feel comfortable.
Big thumbs up on that!
You can even make your profile settings private in a way that strangers can’t find you, but your friend’s social network can. Its very useful and it saves a lot of time of having to reject friend requests from random strangers that you are uninterested in networking with.
Another great feature that Facebook has is that you are able to chat with users. Its good for quick messaging and can be more useful than giving your grandson a phone call at night. Its quick & easy and can be accessed using the messages tab at the top of the site. Adding friends is also very easy. You click on a profile of a user and there should be a button underneath the banner and next to the profile picture.
Setting up a Facebook account is easier than ever before and even a granny can do it. Its funny because most elderly folks are starting to use the social platform to connect with the world. It takes time to get used to it, but over time grannies are going to be a master at it.
