Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram For Seniors For Dummies 3rd Edition Pdf Book Description:
Welcome to the third edition of this book. I’m honored that I have been able to help thousands of people get online and use social media safely. Now you hold this power in your hands, too. I’ve been working and playing online since the mid-’80s. I started out using CompuServe from my old Kaypro II with a 300-baud modem. I’d log on to my computer in the evenings when I had some quiet time after work, after my daughter was asleep. The online world I found through CompuServe had no fancy pages, videos, or even photos. Just phosphor-green text on a tiny screen. The early onliners didn’t have any better technology, so we communicated by sending words across the country and around the world. We chatted with each other and joined groups to discuss our hobbies and our families. Drawing an analogy here, there have been related social communities online for as long as there have been connected computers. Even though kids today may think they invented the current online world, today’s social media are just the 21st-century continuation of a community we’ve known for quite a while. Many people who were online then (in the early ’80s) are still online now. People of a certain age may also (after a long career) want to jump back into the family feeling of an online community. So, even though this book title says For Seniors, you should know I don’t like that term. This book is for those with experience.
Although a persistent rumor claims that only the youngsters go online, actually online participation is growing faster in people over 50. There are more online users over 40 than under 25. Perhaps these people were so busy living their lives and bringing up their children that they didn’t have extra time for themselves then but they do now. And just as in the ’60s or ’70s, they don’t want to be left out of anything. They want to be smack dab in the middle of the online revolution Unfortunately, a lot of what they encounter when they go online is unfamiliar stuff. So (naturally enough) some of the experienced, graying generation experience a feeling of trepidation when it comes to the Internet most of all, they’re a bit unsure about getting on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I have to say: Why? Participating in social media is freeing and can bring so much into your life! You can’t not be there! This book will give you the tools to stay safe and find joy sharing on these sites. I encourage you: Join your extended family, your children, and your friends online. By participating in social media, you’ll find many of your old friends. In a world where people don’t chat on the phone much anymore, the online arena is the perfect place to connect. Remember those open-book tests that teachers sprang on you in school? Well, sometimes you may feel like Facebook pop-quizzes you while you’re online. Think of Facebook, Twitter & Instagram For Seniors For Dummies as your open-book-test cheat sheet with the answers. You
