20 Useful things to make you a Facebook Super-User

Control your Facebook profile like a Facebook Super-User.

Has Facebook become Advertbook?  Have you lost track of friends and whose posts you see?

Do you only use Facebook basics and ignore all those cool apps, icons and features? 

In the next 20 blogs, I’m going to show you how to become a Facebook Super-User and take back control. (Okay, some control, Facebook still controls the sandpit). After all, it’s much more fun when you have a little power!

We’ll do this in bite-sizes, giving you a chance to try it out for yourself, before the next lesson.  Each one is stand-alone. They don’t add on to each other, it’s not layered knowledge like algebra.  Just read the ones you need until you are a Facebook super-user!
