For those who might want to share a virtual cup of coffee, but are too timid to try, Eight O'Clock Coffee is offering a holiday gift: a video that teaches non-Facebook members how to use the social media network.

"It can be difficult to keep in touch in today's busy world, and Facebook is a great way to 'see' friends and family -- at the holidays and all year long," said Alisa Jacoby, senior brand manager at the Eight O'Clock Coffee Co., in announcing the video. "It's like catching up with an old friend over a cup of coffee through the Internet."

Facebook is the most popular social networking site, connecting more than 350 million users around the world. The Eight O'Clock Coffee video shows people how to sign up, create a profile, find friends and post comments.

The video is available on the Eight O'Clock Coffee website or, for the more technically advanced, on Facebook.
