Users discover how to: - Flesh out and protect the all new personal profile - Track down long lost friends, family members, and classmates - Communicate via status updates, email, and chat - Share photos and video - Make the best use of the new Timeline feature - Take advantage of Facebook's new location-based functionality - Schedule real world get-togethers and send out invitations - Share common interests in groups - Play games - Understand Facebook's dizzying array of privacy options that dictate who sees one's content - Buy and sell stuff in the Facebook Marketplace, and more. Readers also learn how to tap the power of Facebook for more than simply personal use-such as personal branding; marketing a business, product, service, or non profit; or promoting a worthy cause.
