"The Facebook Guide for People Over 50 is a fantastic guide to using Facebook aimed at the older generation. It focuses on helping them create a profile, connect with old friends and relatives, communicate with others, and – of course – maintain their safety and privacy online. So if you know someone thinking about joining, or is still a 'newbie' to the site, then this may make for a great gift this holiday season!" (“Today 750 million people — including 50 millionAmericans ages 45 to 65 — are on Facebook. Many of them areusing the social-networking site to plan family reunions, tracefamily trees, and share family photos. You can, too. Before you getstarted, spread the word to Facebook holdouts in your family thatthe site is for all ages, not just for teens and college students."That's one of the rumors I try to dispel early," says PaulMcFedries, 51, author of The Facebook Guide for People Over50. "Facebook is just a reflection of things we do in our livesanyway. You chat with people, you share photographs, you talk aboutyour trips. You can do all of those things on Facebook, and in mostcases, you can do it all a lot easier."”
