Social Media Intro Course is divided into two sections.
Defining your Digital Presence: Your Professional Brand vs. Personal Brand
In the past, your professional brand and personal brand would seldom occupy the same space at the same time. You could be the great manager or staff member from nine to five and then go home to transform into a cub scoutmaster, church minister or homework-checking parent. But in this day and age, social media and networking has blurred the line between our professional and private lives and redefined what the term “friend” means.
I’m sure that most of you have seen your Facebook posts or tweets be commented on by friends from your job, your church, your high school or college classmates. In this workshop, you’ll learn what it takes to be successful in social media. You’ll get to work on defining what your digital presence means, learn how to shape it into what you want and how to measure its success.
Social Media Beginner Course
When you first got into social media, you may have been excited about just jumping in and participating in the conversations rather then focusing on how you set up your profile or understanding the basic rules to communicating online.
We are going to go over your basic social media profiles (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, Google+) for proper set-up and get an understanding of the differences between the networks. You’ll also get some basic training with integrating social media into your daily communication with others.

300 or less friends on Facebook
1000 or less tweets on Twitter (personal or professional)

- What is a personal brand statement? Do I have one?
