Take Control of Your Social Media
This 4 week course will help you to take control of your social media lives - Facebook, twitter, Instagram, and Google Documents. This course is for people who want to get started in social media and for people who use it, but want to learn how to get better control of it. Ian Wells, a retired IT expert and cycling advocate, will give you the information you need to stay in control of your privacy and use social media to stay in touch with only those you care about.
At the end of this class, you will be set up in the social media of your choice and be in control of your privacy. It is required that you bring a smart device, either a tablet, smartphone or laptop computer so you can actually set up during the class.
The weeks will be scheduled as follows:
Week 1: Overview of social media and introduction to Google Documents.
Week 2: Facebook - What Facebook is, how to use Facebook to do what YOU want it for and not what they want!
Week 3: Twitter and Instagram - what they are and how to use them.
Week 4: Final workshop - this final week will have be topics decided by the class
members from our experience over the first 3 weeks.
