Seniors Guide to Social Media and Internet Etiquette & Safety

Social media has quickly become a way for people to stay connected with friends and loved ones.  You can even play a fun game of scrabble with your sister who lives across the country!
 

Social media has quickly become a way for people to stay connected with friends and loved ones.
Look at photos of your new grandchild and watch them take their first steps. Receive an invitation to a friend's 50th wedding anniversary party. Join a group chat and keep in touch with extended family, daily. Or, simply log on to check today's weather and news. But you know how?
Will Bill Gates actually donate $1 for every time I share this meme? Is Facebook preventing me from seeing what my friends post? Have I been hacked? Find out how to tell truth from garbage and keep yourself informed.

This workshop is ideal for seniors (or anyone for that matter, regardless of age) who are interested in learning more about social media and how it can impact their lives as well as internet etiquette and safety.
If you are able, please bring your laptop or phone but these are not required. You will receive a 'cheat notes' to take home with you.
