Hi! My name is Justin Seeley and I'm a staff author here at lynda.com. I'd like to welcome you to Up and Running with Facebook. This course is meant to give you the basic tools that you need to get started using Facebook as quickly and as efficiently as possible. We'll begin by walking you through the steps of creating a new account, including adding a profile picture and setting up your Facebook timeline. From there, I'll break down some basic terminology that will help you understand the ins and outs of Facebook as we continue throughout the course. We will also cover things like building your Friends list, sending and receiving personal messages, working with Facebook news feeds, and also how to share things like photos and videos as well.
Finally, I'll wrap things up by showing you how you can access Facebook from anywhere by using your mobile or tablet device. By the end of this course I hope that you'll have a better understanding of what Facebook is all about and how you can use it to enhance your online social life. I'm really excited to start showing you all of this. So if you're ready, let's get you up and running with Facebook.
