There are many people who shy away from using Facebook to send messages. For first-time users, the site can be an overwhelming mix of confusion and frustration. But if you’re ready to jump on the social media bandwagon and want to get in touch with those you know, it’s actually much simpler than you may suspect. There are three ways to submit messages on Facebook.
The ‘status’ on your page allows you to announce something on your Facebook wall. So for instance, you may post something like “Happy birthday to my daughter, who turns 8 today!” This is the section which keeps your friends updated about what you’re doing.
If one of your friends posts something on their wall, or uploads a photo you like, you can send them a quick message by commenting on what they’ve just written or posted. This can be done by clicking ‘Comment’, and then typing your message.
You can also send private messages to your friends on Facebook. To do this, Just click the “Message” button at the top right of your friend’s page. There, things will look more familiar, as the message will appear just like a regular email message, complete with Subject line.
