Now updated and revised, "Is this thing on?" by Abby Stokes is the user-friendliest, most reassuring, jargon-free, smartest, and most comprehensive nuts-and-bolts guide for seniors, who are the fastest-growing demographic among social networks.

Abby Stokes is the perfect guide to the digital domain: She’s taught more than 140,000 seniors how to use a computer.  In an easy, authoritative, hand-holding way, she covers it all: how to choose, buy, and start using a computer. How to connect to the Internet, sign up for e-mail, and use search engines. Plus, how and why to get digital in the first place: the ins and outs of online shopping, banking, travel planning, dating, research; how to take and share digital photographs and videos; how to discover online communities, and use social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube; the world of apps, online music, and streaming movies; and, importantly, online security and “netiquette.” There’s information on iPads, smartphones—including the Blackberry, iPhone,
and Android—and e-readers like Nook and Kindle. A companion website——plus a Facebook page and Twitter feed provide easy and safe access to this brave new world.  

Abby Stokes has taught more than 140,000 people, mostly seniors, how to use a computer, privately and through courses at Cooper Union and New York University’s School of Lifelong Learning. She lectures on the topic around the country. Ms. Stokes divides her time between New York City and Niantic, Connecticut.
