The need for this course: Social Media
You’d need to be living a long way from the rest of modern humanity not to be affected in some way by Social Media in your day-to-day dealings. The new electronic media platforms developed in the last decade are a great way for people to connect, but they bring the potential for great harm. This course is designed to equip employers, employees and self-employed individuals with the tools to navigate this dynamic and dangerous new communication landscape.
Social Media is a remarkable phenomenon that has opened up communication between people in a way that could not have been envisaged as little as ten years ago. The access to information, sharing of this information and communication have exploded in ways that continue to develop. However, with this wonderful new tool come risks.
The course examines the proliferation of social media, the extent of which poses the very risks raised above. No course on Social Media should be tackled without some insights into the differences between the previous generations and the digital native. In our course, we examine how to use media in a manner that is responsible and protects yourself and others from the trouble you can get into when unaware. Trouble which can not only lead to you being sued, but worse, can leave your reputation in ruins and your life altered for ever.
