Are you new to social media? Do you need help setting up a variety of social media platforms? Then this workshop is for you!
This session will examine what is meant by social media, the many different types and their significance. Then, using practical demonstrations, we will look at how to set up Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, learn how to find friends/followers; and consider the main ways and reasons to use them.
One of the key areas this course will determine the best way of staying safe by considering account settings, and avoiding unsuitable or unlawful material.
