Just do it! I was completely foxed by Facebook and had given up using it long ago. On retirement I felt that it might be a good way of keeping in touch. The course was perfect for me and could have had a 3rd session to be absolutely perfect. As it stands however, I feel, and am, empowered to get going. The teacher is outstanding, as well.
