2.0 out of 5 stars Not very helpful 3 Jan 2010
Maybe I'm just not that much of a dummy, but I always find that these "for dummies" books are only good for complete beginners. If that's what you want, that's fine, but don't expect to get anything very advanced out of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Dudes Can MySpace 10 Jan 2007
By K Potter - Published on Amazon.com
What is this mysterious place that my children visit daily? Is it safe? Does it have any value to my family or business? This book has provided me with the tools to understand and appreciate the power of MySpace. It is an easy and fascinating read and after completion serves as an excellent user friendly referance manual. Last week I was a technology challenged dork. After reading 'MySPace for Dummies' I am now proud to be a MySpace geek. Thank you Ryan Hupfer.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are not using MySpace, this book has your name all over it! 5 July 2007
By Chris Forbes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I work with a lot of faith-based nonprofits and the current debate among them is should they use MySpace. This book helps answer the question. With more than 115 million people on the site who need to be touched with your message and moved to join your cause, why wouldn't you want to reach out to them? This book walks though the basics in the usual great "Dummies" fashion. I was able to read it quickly and afterward set up my profile in just a few minutes. It wasn't long until I customized my profile and started looking like a pro. Now I am building a network of people and exploring a space that helps me connect with all kinds of people. MySpace seems made to order for nonprofit outreach.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant introduction for 'Silver Surfers' everywhere. 17 Mar 2009
By John Joyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase

As someone in their late fifties who can't tell his HTML from his elbow, but wanted to catch the wave of the e-revolution on such sites as MySpace, Blogger and the like, I found this book a brilliant introduction to the world of MySpace.

OK, so it doesn't plunge into the intricacies of HTML, but what it does do (and this is really AWESOME!) is allow you to casually mention to your children that they can always check out your MySpace page if they want to know what you've been doing lately.

It does this through the tried and tested 'For Dummies' approach of assuming that their reader knows absolutely nothing about the subject (in my case this was literally true) and start building from there. The opening chapters explain what MySpace is (how many people over 55 can honestly say that they know?)and then proceeds to explain in simple cook-book language how to set up your own page.

There is also a very interesting chapter on "Marketing the MySpace Way" which I found worth its weight in gold since I unashamedly joined MySpace to plug my own books.

This is a book that delivers exactly what it promises on the cover - a simple manual to get any "Dummy" that reads it up onto MySpace with the minimum of effort. You may not have the best MySpace page in the world once you're done - but you will have one, and for that I am very grateful to the "For Dummies" publishers for making this possible.

Not quite in-depth enough. Didn't really tell me anything I hadn't already figured out on my own.

Easy reading book. Great when you need to reference a particular concern and need directions.
