Summary

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 potentially dangerous new communication landscape.
