How to Use Social Networking Sites for Beginners
Find and Connect with Friends on Facebook
After filling out your profile, you can start adding friends by sending them a friend request via an internal Facebook message or to their email address if you know it. If they click to accept your friend request, their name and a link to their profile/Timeline page will automatically appear on your list of Facebook friends. Facebook offers various ways to find friends, including a scan of your existing email contact list if you grant access to your email account.Searching for individuals by name is another option. Our Facebook search tutorial explains how Facebook search works, so you can look for people you know on Facebook. As soon as you have a few friends and have liked some companies, comments or products, then Facebooks automated friend recommendation tool will kick in and start showing you links to people you may know. If you recognize their face when their profile image appears on your Facebook page, you can just click the link to send them a friend request.
