Facebook is the wildly popular, free social networking site that combines the best of blogs, online forums and groups, photosharing, clever applications, and interaction among friends. The one thing it doesn't have is a users guide to help you truly take advantage of it. Until now. Facebook: The Missing Manual gives you a very objective and entertaining look at everything this fascinating Facebook phenomenon has to offer.

Teeming with high-quality color graphics, each page in this guide is uniquely designed to help you with specific Facebook tasks, such as signing up, networking, shopping, joining groups, finding or filling a job, and a whole lot more. You'll discover how to create your page and make connections with other members in no time -- everybody who went to your school, for example, or those who work at your company or play on your soccer team. Bingo: instant access to the personal and professional details of all the folks you're connected with, the folks they're connected with, and so on, and so on.

With Facebook: The Missing Manual, you learn to:

Join a network, whether it's in your area, or work-related, or based on other interests Look up old friends, find new ones, and decide who you'd like to keep track of Contact members by poking them, writing on their walls, and sending them gifts Get automatic updates from Facebook friends and send updates to them Participate in groups of particular interest and hook up with members face-to-face Buy and sell using Facebook's uniquely targeted marketplace and classified ads Find a job or hire employees by combing through Facebook's member pool Use Facebook as a collaboration tool to keep team members, co-workers, clients, and projects up to date Play it safe by using a multi-pronged approach to ensuring your privacy Think of Facebook as a 30-million-plus-entry searchable Rolodex on steroids! With help from this Missing Manual, you'll quickly get in the swim of the Facebook experience -- without getting in over your head.

Facebook's popularity is skyrocketing, drawing more than 500 million people to this combination online village green, personal website creator, and souped-up address book. But one thing you won't get when signing up is a printed manual.

A friend learned that I’d just joined Facebook and loaned me this book. Of course, within a week of my joining, some aspects of Facebook had changed. And today, as I write this review, I find my home page and profile look completely different. So, did the book help me?I guess what I’d really like is an online Facebook manual—one that updates every time they update the site. But this book has a second edition coming out in March 2010, so maybe that would solve my problems.As a Facebook newbie, I simply inserted information into my profile, responded to other people’s “stuff” that appeared in my “feed,” and wondered how anyone wrote all those articles since all I could see was a status bar rather like Twitter’s, or Gather’s, or any other ning’s.My usual technique with any kind of software is get comfortable with doing very little then slowly start pushing buttons. The Missing Manual was valuable to me in that it suggested what sort of things I should be able to do, thus encouraging me to click those strange words with a little more confidence that they might do what I wanted.“Note.” That’s like a “post,” or “article.” Okay. That makes sense. And maybe there really is a way to link Facebook to my blog so I don’t have to write the same post twice. (Three times if I want to post it on Gather too, but I usually don’t.) The Missing Manual didn’t give me the right instructions, but it pointed me in the right directions to succeed.I found Facebook networks after reading the first few chapters, but I couldn’t find my local network no matter how hard I tried. Maybe they don’t have them anymore, or maybe I’ll find them soon just like I found groups, which seemed more useful, maybe. And I almost learned the meaning of pages, even creating my own one to advertize my books. One day I’ll figure out how to make it look more professional, and I’ll probably use the Missing Manual to help me guess what’s possible.I’m glad I read the manual. I think it’s helped me get further, faster, though I still have a long way to go. Facebook’s fun, and my friend assures me it’s helped her friend to sell her stuff. Anything that helps me sell…

Very clear and simple introduction to Facebook. This book covers the same things as Facebook for Dummies but presents information differently. If you are not happy with the Dummies approach, try this one. The author includes lots of step by step pictures. The biggest problem is that even though this was published in 2008, the book does not include the latest Facebook upgrades.
