First learn chords. Start with basics, like G C D A Em and practice holding them and switching between them. You want to get to the point where it's natural and you don't have to think about it. This is the foundation. Then use sites like ultimate guitar to look up songs you like and the site will show you how to play them. You'll get to the point where you can play any chord easily and pick up songs. Then learn finger style. Use tabs and youtube for this one. It takes a lot of practice but it will come, and then you won't even think about it

i learned tabs first but you can learn chords first if you want, its what you feel more comfortable with. once you learn basic chords you can learn barre chords and power chords and all that fun stuff. i took a year of guitar at school then i just kind of learned songs on my own. once you get the hang of it though it is totally worth it in the end.

Don't know who these "people" are, but you need to stop listening to them as they seem to be idiots. Learning to read, whether it be tab or actual notation, is part of learning guitar. What they are telling you is like saying learn to read before you learn the alphabet...see my point. There are many songs, scales etc. you can learn by just watching videos, but you will seriously limit yourself if you cannot read tab as well. It is very easy.

You don't "do" tablature; tablature is a simplified way of writing down music for fretted instruments. It is very limited in the information it shows, must be studied in conjunction with a recording of the piece and, like all forms of written music, is intended for people who are already able to play the instrument. What should you "do" to learn the guitar? You should learn to play the guitar! In the 21st century, in the age of the computer and the Internet, I cannot believe that you don't know what this involves or how you might go about it. If this is the case, and I am wrong, you need to do a little research.
