A Site to Make Use Of

reading glasses

Need quick, basic technology help? Check out this site.

Last week, we “discovered” this terrific site that requires only an email to register.  Once you sign up you gain access to their Cheat Sheets and downloadable instruction guides on a wide variety of technology tools ranging from computer operating systems (Windows, OSX, Linux) to smartphone apps to social media. These folks have gathered information on everything from building a WordPress website, using Twitter, understanding GoogleMail (Gmail), and learning how to work best with your computer’s operating system.

The cheat sheets were very beginner-level, although we did learn a few keyboard shortcuts for Facebook.  The instruction guides are pretty thorough, and a great overview for the topic (we explored their instruction guide for Twitter).  The materials are written in down to earth styles and include hot-links.  And did we mention FREE?

You can also choose different RSS feeds from their site (bottom left) to follow their main articles, tech answers or whichever information is of interest to you. Remember, their focus is technology, not publishing, so choose carefully how much information you want to monitor from them.

Late breaking tip:  They’ve just added a new page for their Best Of.  http://www.makeuseof.com/pages/the-best-of
