Course Description

The dangers of social media, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, to us is endless.  Much of the problem can be traced to the fact that many people just don't know how much they are putting out there on a daily basis, and how quickly information can spread.  It is important to talk to each other and to our employees about making good decisions on social media.

This talk will focus on several areas:

     Good decision making

     Difference between posting on personal/professional time

     The importance of thinking before you post

     Remembering who you represent
