Event: Social Media for Beginners

Add to Calendar

This workshop will provide participants with an initial exposure to today’s most popular social networking sites, what they are and how they are different from one another.
Introduction to:
Introduction to Twitter - You may have heard of “microblogs” or “microblogging” and wondered what the phrase meant. Twitter is the most popular microblogging site - one driven by short, textual messages or “microblogs.”
Introduction to LinkedIn - The second most popular social network in the U.S., LinkedIn is used for keeping track of and growing a professional network, finding and applying for jobs, posting and viewing online resumes, giving and receiving recommendations, learning more about companies, tracking industry news and moves, and more.
Introduction to YouTube - One of the world’s top most visited sites, YouTube also has social networking functions, meaning you do not have to be a filmmaker (amateur or otherwise) to join the community. Users can find and subscribe to YouTube channels - from companies or individuals - and add friends, whether they’ve personally made videos or not.
Introduction to Pintrest - One of the fastest growing social networks in the country, Pintrest is a self proclaimed online pinboard site. People and companies are using it to organize and show off their “favorite things” on digital bulletin boards by uploading photos and graphics directly from their computers and smartphones (there is a free app for iPhone users) and by “pinning” images and graphics from websites.
