Are you interested in online networking but don't know how to start or what to do next? Are you wondering how online networking could be valuable to you, either personally or professionally? In this hands-on introduction to Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, participants will create profiles or edit existing ones; learn to customize privacy and other settings; and discover how to create community online.
You will begin by gaining an understanding of the concept of "Web presence," and you will learn how to develop and use personal and professional Web presences, including how to separate the two. Then you'll learn the primary uses of each of these social networks, including how they can coordinate with each other. The instructor will also discuss privacy and ownership issues.
You will spend most of your time actually working with the functions and features of Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, becoming comfortable with their interfaces and learning how to get the most from them. You will learn how to communicate via social networks, whether one-to-one or one-to-many, and how to leverage the community-building strategies these networks facilitate.
You will leave ready to make these powerful tools work for you, whether personally, professionally, or both. PCs and Macs will be available. If you already have a Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter account, be sure to bring or know your password(s).
