Billed as a lunchtime seminar for Facebook holdouts who have either been wary of the perceived exposure or nonplussed by postings of what “friends” had for breakfast, the aptly named “Facebook for the Deeply Suspicious and Slow to Adopt” brown bag lunch program, delivered by Associate Director for Online Communications Holly Sherburne, offered a lighthearted introduction to the social media goliath, including five reasons to join:
1. Everyone else is, including your grandmother (and your neighbor’s dog)
2. Reconnect and stay connected with friends and family
3. Easily share photos with friends and family
4. Keep up with news, organizations, brands or to join a group
5. Get recommendations and customer service
The one reason not to? Because you don’t want to be found (because you’re in the Witness Protection Program/hiding from wacky family members/don’t want to be found by your high school classmates).
Sherburne addressed security concerns and how to limit who sees what you’re posting.
