Hello again! We are going to pick right back up again where we left off by going into part two of Facebook Week! As I said, today we will be dealing with customizing your Facebook profile with information, images, and more. Hopefully, some of your friends that you requested on Tuesday will have accepted by now. If they have, you will see a little red notification in the lower right hand corner. If you click on it, it will expand.
It is very important in the future, because it will show you what’s new with your account when you log into Facebook.
1. On your homepage, click on the banner that reads View and edit your profile.
2. Your profile information is broken into four sections; Basic, Personal, Contact, Education and Work. After you finish with Basic Information click Save Changes, and Personal Information will expand.
3.You will notice right away in the Personal Information that a drop down list appears with suggestions, which makes filling out the form a bit easier.
Continue filling out information and saving your changes, and then click Done Editing.
4. The profile is complete. You should have something that accurately describes you and that you are proud of.
5. Now for the profile picture. If you have a webcam, you can use that to take a picture live. But the more popular option is to upload a picture saved on your computer. Click on Upload a Profile Picture.
6. A pop up will appear. Select Browse and find your image. It will automatically upload and be displayed on your profile.
7. Pictures are a very important feature of Facebook. If you an active photographer at parties and meetings, and want to upload an album of picture follow these steps.
8. Click Add Photos and enter the album information like displayed below.
9. Browse for the images, and accept to the Terms of Service and click Upload Photos.
10. You can now add captions to the pictures. If the pictures contain your friends you can tag them, by clicking on their face and selecting their name from the drop down box. They will then receive a notification to view your album.
11. In fact, as a new Facebook user it’s a good idea to look through friend’s albums, and you may find pictures of yourself that you’ve never seen and tag yourself in them.
Whew! Now that we’ve finished our initial setup, it is time to start communicating with our friends. I cannot wait to show you! See you next week!
