Social Networking for Seniors in Easy Steps starts with a simple explanation of the concept of social networking and what one can do with their computer to take advantage of this phenomenon.
This straighforward book guides users though the maze of online social networks, allowing seniors to reap their benefits while avoiding the pitfalls. Here, readers will learn how to choose right network(s) for their purposes, set up an account, connect with other users (and block people they want to avoid), share photos with the family, keep in touch with grandchildren around the world, make the most of business networks, and manage and control privacy.
A chapter is dedicated to the SAGA network, which connects people with other seniors around the world. Everything a senior member of society needs to know to get started and enjoy various digital social networks is covered here.
