More About the Author

In 1998 Marsha created the first edition of eBay For Dummies, then, followed up the success of the first book with a second book targeting individuals interested in making e-commerce their full time profession, Starting an eBay Business For Dummies. That book became an instant nationwide hit, making several notable Best Seller lists. Since then, Marsha has updated each of her books and published many more.

Her e-commerce advice has appeared in publications such as Martha Stewart Living and Reader's Digest, and don't be surprised if you've seen her on television - as a guest on The View or the Today Show and in her own PBS special, Making Your Fortune Online.

She is a popular keynote speaker, inspiring online sellers to success, the lead instructor at eBay University, speaks at conferences worldwide, and runs a successful online business - so is she an internet fanatic?

This book is not helpful to me in HOW to use social media. The angle is more why to and what Facebook and Twitter are. For how to use the explanations are not clear and skimmed over. This is for Dummies right?

Could have been a little more explicit. I forget what the cost was but what ever it was it wasn't worth it. You can get more by just playing with the system.

Loved the ease of understanding this book; as I gave to my Father & he is 86 years old, I hung around for a few moments in case he had any questions, but...he was reading it, then went right to his computer, got online & I heard a few, "Oh wow that is how to do its" lol from him, I could tell he was VERY pleased at the ease, he was nervous at first, but now he is helping to teach other "Seniors" he calls his circle of friends ~~ THANK YOU Marsha Collier :)

Well done, but it omitted treatment of what I ordered it for: posting documents on Facebook. Turns out that FB will only accept JPEG documents, whil most wannabee users probably are restricted to .doc. The necessary conversion process is cumbersome and complicated. Otherwise, quite helpful
