Seniors sign up for Facebook

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.- YVCC students teamed up with KNDO and the Harman center Thursday to help seniors sign up for Facebook.

About thirty people showed up.  Some created accounts for the first time and others learned to use new features. One woman already had an account but didn't know how to use it.  She says she'll use what she learned today to contact a long lost friend.

"And my daughter got her to be my friend." Said Ellen Matich. "But I haven't been able to correspond, so I'm gonna do that tonight."

Participants in the workshop also got to take home a PowerPoint presentation to help them remember what they learned.
