The second step into your Facebook experience is updating your profile. You can do this by adding basic information about you such as your first and last name, the town you live, your birthday and your interests.

The third step into understanding how to use Facebook is to add people. At first you should try to add people that you know so that you understand how to use key features such as the like button and the messenger. Once you believe that you have gained enough friends and comprehension of the key tools of the website then you may go ahead and begin adding people that you may not know, so you can grow connections and bonds with them.

You can stay active by posting status telling people about what your opinions, or just what you are currently doing. You can also like people statuses if you enjoy what they have to say, and you can poke or message people to let them know that you were thinking of them. These are all essential parts of understanding how to use Facebook and providing you with the best experience.
