Social Media

Introduction to Social Media:

a two-hour, intensive introduction to MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other popular social media platforms. Covers the etiquette unique to each, how to set up your profile, privacy concerns, how to promote via social media and how to connect with real friends. This course is not a hands-on, lets-get-you-signed-up-on-Facebook course; it’s more to make you aware of all the different services out there and to give you some perspective to make an informed choice about your participation in the social media space.

This is a $75 course which runs on March 28th from 10-noon. There are only eight places in each session.  Please email bloggingclasses AT gmail DOT com to pre-register. Payment in advance via Paypal or by special arrangement.
