Chapter 1. Welcome to Facebook—It’s Not Just for Kids Anymore

You probably think of Facebook as the place where all the young people hang out online.

Now, I know you’re only as young as you feel, but if you’re reading a book called Facebook for Grown-Ups, you’re probably a tad past your school years. In other words, you’re not that young anymore. So why should you care about Facebook?

There’s a simple answer to that question: Facebook isn’t just for young people, at least not anymore. Facebook is now a social network for people of all ages, young and old alike.

You see, it doesn’t matter how old you are; Facebook and other social networks help you keep in touch with family, friends, and coworkers. Chances are you can find lots of friends already on the site—including, it would be fair to wager, all your children, nieces and nephews, and grandchildren, if you have them.
