Although Facebook is the clear social media site leader, there is a learning curve when it comes to sharing, posting, liking, and other Facebook functions. Here’s how to use Facebook’s most important features, such as your Facebook Profile page, Home page, and News Feed.
Friends on Facebook are people you’ve become friends with after accepting each other’s friend requests. Using Facebook’s search engine, you can easily find friends and individuals you know, and Facebook will frequently propose possible friends based on your present ties. Friends will appear on your Friends list when you’ve added them.
Create a Post on Facebook
When you first enter Facebook, you’ll notice a text box that asks, “What’s on your mind [your name]?” It’s where you’ll write your status update or share your ideas, as well as upload images.
Home Page and News Feed
Your News Feed is displayed on your Facebook Home page. You may see and scroll through anything posted by the people and company Pages you follow on your News Feed page. When you log into Facebook, the News Feed is where you’ll find yourself. If you’re using Facebook on a desktop, you can get to it at any time by clicking the house-shaped Home button at the top of the page. The Home icon is located on the bottom menu of the iPhone app and on the top menu of the Android app.
After selecting your name and image from the top right on a desktop or selecting Menu > See Your Profile on the Facebook mobile app, you’ll be sent to your Profile page.
Your Profile page includes a profile picture and a cover photo, as well as biographical information that you can change or add to at any time, and a scrollable list of posts you’ve made or been tagged in.
You can change your About information, see your friends and images, and manage your postings in your Profile. In the past, this page was known as the “Wall” or “Timeline.”
Other users can discover more about you by going to your Profile page. You can choose to make your Profile page information visible to anybody on Facebook or to keep it hidden from all but your Facebook friends.
How Your News Feed and Profile Page Differ
You’ll probably spend the most time on Facebook on your News Feed and Profile page. Your News Feed is all about your friends and what they’re up to, but your Profile page is all about you and the information you’re willing to share.
Your News Feed page is a continuous stream of information from your friends, as well as any Facebook Groups or Pages you follow. What you see is one-of-a-kind because it is centered on the people and organizations that you are interested in.
