Tips to help when using Facebook.

With a Facebook account full of friends and lots happening on your news feed it's time to unleash the full power of social networking. The most important part of the Facebook page is the notifications bar. This alerts you when someone posts a reply to a comment you've made, sent you a message, or adds you as a friend. The red numbers show how many notifications of that type you've received. Click on an icon to show a list of recent notifications. Then click on the notification to jump to that person's profile.

Now privacy is a big deal on Facebook since you could be potentially showing all your photos and posts to the whole world. You can use the inline privacy bar to set which people can see any post, photo, or video you put up on Facebook. Privacy options in your account can be set to cover everything you do on Facebook. A good setting is to ensure your information, posts, and photos can only be seen by friends and not friends of friends. A stranger visiting your Facebook page will only see your profile picture and some basic info, and need your permission to view anything more.

If you reject a friend's request, don't worry. The person making the request doesn't get a rejection notice. The same goes if you delete a friend. They won't know they've been deleted until they try to visit your page again.

By clicking on the friends link and then clicking "Manage friends list" you can see all the friends you have.
