Chances are, if you're not on Facebook already, then you're likely to be getting on it pretty soon. Whether it's your kids or your neighbor (or those old friends you just reunited with at your high school reunion), people around you have been nagging you to sign up, set up a profile, and start "social-networking" with all your friends. Social-networking sites such as Facebook (and MySpace, Bebo, LinkedIn, etc) are increasingly turning into the first place people go when they get on the Internet, as these services offer e-mail, chat, music players, photo sharing, and so much more beyond just staying in touch with your Friends.
Sign up for the library's facebook 101 class on 11/24 and set up your profile, learn how to add pictures, send messages, deal with privacy settings, and more.
