As you can see from our website, there’s quite a bit of chat about Making Ireland Click on the social networks Facebook and Twitter. If you’re wondering what Facebook and Twitter are all about, read on to find out more…
“Facebook is a social networking site that makes it easy for you to connect and share updates with your family and friends online. Anyone over the age of 13 with a valid email address can join Facebook. Today, Facebook is the world’s largest social network, with more than 1 billion users worldwide. ”
“Twitter is a social networking website that’s designed for finding and sharing short updates. In fact, each post—or tweet as they’re called on Twitter—is limited to just 140 individual characters (including letters, spaces, and punctuation marks).”
These descriptions are taken from the articles over at the Goodwill Community Foundation website. Their easy-to-follow guides will tell you all you need to know about these social networks, and provide a step by step guide to signing up if you choose to do so.
