AUGUSTA -- Facebook made some drastic changes to its interface and features, but that did not stop the Augusta-Richmond County Library from teaching new users how to use the site.
Sheryl L. James, the community service and outreach librarian, teaches a computer course offered every Wednesday and decided to implement the social media site as today's topic.
James taught her students the basics of the site such as creating an account, adding friends, uploading pictures and configuring their privacy settings.
Debra Seaward, a student in the computer class, said that learning how to use Facebook was important, because she has a son in Kuwait who as an account.
Many of the students were eager to become familiar with the site to get connected with old friends and classmates and stay in touch with family members.
After two hours of lessons and demonstrations, some people may be receiving friend requests from people they had not seen or heard from in a while.
