Facebook can help you connect with people in your community and all over the world through the mobile internet.
You can use Facebook to stay in touch with family, friends and people you do business with. You can get news about what’s going on in the world, or find out more about your favourite celebrities and sports teams. Facebook is what’s known as a ‘social network’. There are other social networks on the internet that work in a similar way.
Using words, photos and videos, you can communicate with one person, a specific group of people or millions of people all over the world. But you need to be aware that Facebook is public, so others will be able to see what you put on it.
You can access Facebook on an internet browser through your smart or feature phone by going to www.facebook.com.
The next step is to create a Facebook account so your friends can find you.
Now you will need to add people as friends on Facebook.
Your Facebook account is ready – and now you can share personal stories and updates, or information about your business.
To stay safe on Facebook, you can decide who you want to interact with. By tapping on the Privacy icon, you can go down to Privacy Shortcuts, and choose who can see your information, who can contact you, and how you can stop someone from contacting you or seeing your Facebook activity.
If you use Facebook, you will need to buy data from your mobile network provider.
Certain Facebook activities – like watching videos or listening to music, posting images or viewing pictures – will use more data than making comments or sharing personal updates with words, so will cost more.
The mobile internet makes it easy to stay in touch with friends, family and the wider world. Why don’t you try it today?
