Social media, the Internet of Things, big data, artificial intelligence… the future is digital and new advancements are being made at an ever-increasing pace. When properly implemented, these tools have the ability to make our lives immeasurably better: allowing you to connect with millions in a matter of seconds, making things more convenient and affordable, as well as improve people’s quality of life. However, these same tools can potentially jeopardize your privacy and security, prevent you from being employed, and lead to negative health outcomes such as depression and anxiety in many.
In this webinar, we will go over best practices for various social media platforms, highlight how your data can be used, and review what to look out for when submitting content online so that you can harness these tools for your benefit instead of them potentially ruining opportunities down the line.
• Learn how different social media platforms use and share your data.
• Become familiar with best practices and optimal privacy settings for different apps (Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon, WhatsApp, and Instagram).
