Recommends it for: anyone looking to learn twitter/facebook
another excellent book by Marsha - and not just for seniors. By the time you finish chapter 1, it feels like she's writing one-on-one and not a "general" book. Whenever I give local Social Media talks/workshops this is one of the books I mention as a must read!

I'm giving this book 3 stars because I believe the book did a pretty good job of helping novice users understand and use Facebook and Twitter in 2010.

Web sites, including social media sites, change so often that books such as these become outdated soon after they are published. The information in this particular book is still, as of March, 2013, fairly useful, though, if the reader makes some intuitive leaps about where a particular feature of the site might be located now. Getting the book from a public library is a good idea unless there's a compelling reason to own a copy, since the book will need to be updated soon.

Overall I think Dummies books are a great series. This one was okay but not entirely what I had expected.

It is best for anyone who does not already own a computer. The first few chapters deal with buying computers, getting online for the first time, setting up email, etc. I had anticipated it would give more hints about Facebook. I did not read the Twitter section.

For complete novices who need to buy a computer, I'm sure you'd find this book more helpful than I did.

The writing is simple, informative and friendly. I enjoyed reading this book, and expanded my knowledge sufficiently to use Twitter and do some blogging.
