Finding Friends

After you join Facebook, there are a few ways to find your friends or invite them to join:

Search for friends

You can search for your friends by typing their names or email addresses in the search bar.

Import your contacts

You can import your list of contacts from other places (ex: your email account, your phone) and we'll find your friends for you. After Facebook imports your contacts, you'll have the option to send a friend request to any of your friends that already have a Facebook account or send an invitation to friends who aren't on Facebook

Invite friends individually

You can also invite your friends individually from the Invite Your Friends page. Enter the email addresses of anyone you want to invite and add a personal message (optional).

Note: When you invite friends to join Facebook, we'll save a list of those contacts so you can see who you invited and send reminders. You can always manage your list of contacts and control the invitations and reminders those friends receive.

How to Post & Share

You can post a new status from the top of your Timeline or your News Feed. To post a status update:

1. Type your update in the share menu on your Timeline or at the top of News Fee

2. You can also:

* tag friends

* pick a date for the story

* add how you're feeling or what you're doing

* add a location

* add a photo

3. Select an audience for your post

4. Click Post

When I post something, how do I choose who can see it?

You'll find an audience selector tool most places you share status updates, photos and other things you post. Click the tool and select who you want to share something with.

The tool remembers the audience you shared with the last time you posted something and uses the same audience when you share again unless you change it. For example, if you choose Public for a post, your next post will also be Public unless you change the audience when you post. This one tool appears in multiple places, such as your privacy shortcuts and privacy settings. When you make a change to the audience selector tool in one place, the change updates the tool everywhere it appears.

The audience selector also appears alongside things you've already shared, so it's clear who can see each post. After you've shared a post, you have the option to change who it's shared with. If you want to change the audience of a post after you've shared it, click the audience selector and select a new audience.

Remember, when you post to another person's Timeline, that person controls what audience can view the post. Additionally, anyone who gets tagged in a post may see it, along with their friends.
