Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Pinterest, Snapchat, Tumblr and Reddit. Just a few of the dizzying array of social media platforms out there. So, what’s the big deal about them? Why are they such a big part of the modern world? Join your instructor Shawn Gramiak for a guided tour of how these platforms work. This hands-on class will give participants a taste of each platform and the basic skills required to use them. The pros and cons of each platform will be discussed, as well as security and privacy issues. Fast paced and fun, this course requires familiarity with the Internet in addition to keyboard and mouse skills.
