#2 Log in #3 then you get to your “home page”
Starting from the top
Look at how I have these lists on the top left hand corner I have super close, family, san Diego, Los Angeles, “the default news feed”, NYC, DC, Chicanas, cool, troy and more. These are the most important things in facebook. You need to have Listas. A list for every group of people you know. If you play baseball, then create a list called “Baseball dudes” or something Now why should you make these lists? Don’t worry about it yet… Just learn how to make them first. Now, “how to make a list”…. You go up to the blue bar on top and put your Mouse over the Friends tab and click on “All Friends” Now on the bottom left hand corner of your “all friends page” you should find a button that says “Make a New List”
From there you should see this… Now, in that Light blue highlighted area that says “New List” you should type in the name of your new list, “duh”. Remember my previous examples of NYC, or Art Buddies, or Baseball dudes, or my kid’s parents from PTA, whatever the name of your list is, name it here. For the purpose of this “training exercise” say that its going to be called, Family.. There you go, and don’t forget to press Enter/Return. Ok cool, you have a list, now how do you populate this list?
First you click on your recently created list like so>…. I have other lists like Limited and people from Los Angeles so ignore them and see how the little edit Word comes out and the other word in this case, Family, is highlighted. Well this means you’re on the right list. Click on it.
Ok, so now, you should see this…
I had to create this second Family- list (since I already had one) so you can see how your page will look like assuming you don’t have anyone on this list yet. Ok, so now, type in the name of one of your “family members” that are already your friends. For the purpose of this exercise, lets just say your family member is “Oscar Romero” Well when you click on the O all of your friends with the letter O should come up. This is very helpful because sometimes you only remember your friends last name or their first name but you know you want to place them somewhere where later you can change the privileges of what they can see off of your profile. Ok, in any case, back to the training. Great so now you select the friend that belongs to that list. You click on the name and also another thing that is very convenient is you can take a gander at what “network they are on.” Notice how both Omar and Oscar are both in Los Angeles but Pauline Oliveros is in San Francisco. Well, when you’re making a list for your friends in San Francisco, now you can remember to add Pauline in case you want to invite her to your parties in San Francisco if you ever decide to go. Ok, anyway, so here you have it.
We have one friend on this list and his name is Oscar Romero and he happens to have a great pectoral area. Excellent. Now, see on the top right hand corner the little weird square with the menu looking icon and the “X” to the right of it? Well, if you click very gently on the Menu looking icon you can see a broader view of the options available for this friend.
So now you can see he is on three lists already. I have him in my list called Los Angeles, Super Close and that Fake new Family list I just created. But for the purposes of this exercise, I’m going to add him to another list just so you can see how to add lists even from this area. For that I’ll need another example a new friend. So for that I’ll go to friends I’ve recently added and I found Incite LA Below you see that Incite LA is not on any of my lists and the “Details” of how I know this “friend” aren’t clear or specified. This is why I’m going to click on “How I know Incite LA”
then this dialogue box shows up. It’s asking me to tell it how I know it. Lets say I know this friend through my other friend Marcus Kuiland-Nazario. There I just select the friend. And bam, now facebook gives you more information on that person’s profile how you know them, but the friend you wrote that information about must confirm that how you say you met is true. You can’t just say, we hooked up in an abandoned hotel in 2006 and get away with it every time. lol
Now I’m going to add incite to the list of Los Angeles and Limited. I don’t really know this person so I’m going to do something in the privacy area to make him/her limited.
there, so now you can see that Incite LA is on two lists and this friend has not confirmed how I think we know each other. Later when this person confirms it, it will be there until someone says they don’t want to say this on that anymore. Ok, so now, the most important feature of facebook. how do I get losers from taking my friends? How do I prevent losers from knowing too much. How do I prevent strange people from seeing my picture of my latest blueberry pancake on my mobile upload? Ok, well, what you want to do is go to PRIVACY SETTINGS
And it’s going to look like this. Well without all of those blocked people. That’s something you can learn on your own, I think. However if you already tried and need the short cuts, proceed.
Click on PROFILE
See, I have each little thing customized so that only specific lists can see things So everyone that is my friend can see my basic info except people on the “Limited List” and people who I say I don’t even know this person. So what I do, is I organize these people into lists and then I limit their privileges according to the “circle of trust,” if you will, that I have for them. Now my Super Close list is the only list that can see all of my status updates, videos, and pictures. Cool is for my friends that I love but I don’t want to worry them with my every day life situation so I remove their status privileges. Now Limited is for people that I think are my friends but I don’t know them enough to share all my information with, In fact, strangers, and nosey people go in this list. It’s just a precautionary measure nothing personal. Ok, so yes, I recommend you go out there and set privacy settings to specific lists and oh, one more thing I want to show you. How do you block people from a specific list like my “Limited List” to not be able to see anything and yet still remain your “facebook friend”? Stay in the Privacy button, then profile, and then click on
Then click on Edit Custom Settings. Then you’ll get this dialogue box. May I please recommend that you never allow “everyone on facebook” to see your profile. This is not just scary, but weird. I don’t think you’re cool enough to know how to manage the behaviors of “everyone on facebook.” Your information can strike behaviors of specific people, be forewarned. Create these lists of your friend, and immediately categorize them. It sounds cruel, but do you let everyone come to your house for dinner parties? Exactly… now lets proceed See, here I clicked on who can see my status updates as only those friends on the Super Close list. Meaning, these are people that If I talk about menstruating on my status are not going to blog about it, be shocked that I am posting this and most of all, don’t give a shit because they’re just not judgmental people. They’ll laugh, they’ll throw me a thong on super poke but that’s just about it. These are people I super doper trust. The highest level of my “circle of trust.” These are people who not only have my cell phone # but call me on a regular basis. These people are involved in my day-to-day life, somehow, or in my case, want to know about my Art Process. Ok this second part about Networks. DON’T EVER ALLOW everyone in your networks to see everything. This is another way that facebook traps people into to giving too much information to people whom its no one’s business knowing about you. On the bottom, type in the word limited and make sure that people on Limited list can absolutely not see your status update. I could put cool there too. But sometimes I allow the “cool” people on my “cool” list to read my updates depending on how I feel about them reading my updates. The problem with that is they can read all of my old history of status updates. I already emailed facebook stating they need to give me permission to only give certain status updates to certain lists. So people in my cool list have a different set of ideas. I’m thinking of a more controlled PR approach to that issue of the status updates. In any case, back to this area. ALWAYS ALLOW friends to subscribe to your updates. This is COOL. If you’re going to let them read them, make it easier for them to read them. Don’t force your friends that you already gave permission to read your status updates to have to click on your profile to read what’s going on in your life. That sucks and I judge people that don’t check on that. Duhhhh.. They make me work harder just to keep up with a life that I already know more about because I probably pick up the phone and call u every now and then. Anyway, that’s that about status updates. Then there are the “Except these people”. Always put your limited people on each opportunity you can. Especially the part where if they can see who your friends are. Some people on facebook just want to be your friend so they can “steal” your buddies and network with them. Those guys are mooches and I don’t like them. I’d rather suggest a friend to a friend or give them “cool” or “super cool” privileges, they can see almost
everything, except for things I deem I only want to be able to see, like some of my alumni email addresses that nobody cares about nor needs to remember. Now pictures, those are so important, all my friends want to learn how to block students and other losers from checking out your weekend pictures of you and the Yes Men in a bikini at the NAMAC conference in a Jacuzzi with Alex Rivera too! Lol (wink wink 2006) So what you want to do is go to search and type in Photos. Click on photos and then go to my photos
you can either go to the specific album and click on Edit Album or go to Album Privacy all the links are in blue. See the album privacy next to the “my photo comments” that’s where you want to go, but for the purpose of this exercize, I’m going to click on Edit Album. From there, you wan to click on The EDIT INFO tab.
Ok, so here it is See how at the bottom of the album Then click on custom settings. And select which lists of people you want to see this photo album. The advantage of doing different preferences for your albums than your profile items is that some friends can see some pictures and other friends can see other pictures. :-D Also family, family can see, OTHER PICTURES. YOU KNOW they are on a list of their own. Wink wink
How to invite your friends to party’s? First you find an event in the city list you want to invite
type in the word events in the search area and then click on events. I find events from “my friends” list and then just click on any event.
then you have to say whether you’re attending or not. If you want to invite people to this list whether you are going or not, you must say either maybe or attending. If you say you’re not attending, facebook won’t let you invite friends. So I’d suggest to click on maybe attending and macintosh computers refresh your page.
Ok, so now on top of that, a little Text will show up that says,
“invite people to come”. If you go to the little box on the right you can see it has a little box to enter the name of the list you want to invite, or the name of the person
so I typed in San Francisco, and 19 people are on that list. So I want to invite San Francisco to my friend Julia’s event. She’s an artist and she’s going to be in San Francisco talking about her work, so Its important for my friends, not just to meet her, but to learn about her art work, so I’m inviting them.
There now, all of my friends from San Francisco got invited, except Bettina Escauriza because we’re both classmates of Julia and Julia already knows that Bettina is over there, and probably already invited her to this art event. Ok, cool, so that’s pretty much how you do it kids & cats! I hope you enjoy making lists and inviting your friends to parties. You know it takes like a whole 8 hours to organize 400 friends into several lists but hopefully once you’re totally organized you only have to go back and take care of say your “recently added” friends and organize them accordingly.
