Reviewer:             Yolanda M. Johnson-Bryant – Literary Wonders!  
Rating:                  3 Stars

           I gave Using Facebook by Kent Joshi and Patrice-Anne Rutledge a 3 star rating, not because it is a bad book, in fact is a good resource. However, this book basically has the same information as the last three or four books I purchased about Facebook. I would love to see one of these titles that give extensive resources and how-to’s on creating successful landing pages.
          This book is more for the novice user, who is getting started with Facebook. Beginners will find the resources in this guide useful and valuable.
          I do like that the book directs readers to video tutorials, resources on the internet and it comes with an interactive CD. I will say, this is one of the few books I’d refer to my clients when they want to get started using Facebook or do more than just post funny jokes and pictures of their children or animals.
          I might add that I love Sarari’s resources. They always offer a free trial at the end of books such as these. I have several of their titles and find them useful.
