Social Media Class

The Internet has completely revolutionized the way we communicate with each other, and the rate of change shows no signs of slowing down.

You've no doubt come across some of the most popular social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, and there are many other ways to be social while on the go — the photo sharing app Instagram is a good example. However, not everyone is computer literate. These people may find social media intimidating and aren't sure where to begin with it, which can lead to them feeling left out.

This is where your group can lend a hand.

If you have a few computer-savvy members within your organization, hold a social media class fundraiser to help participants familiarize themselves with the ins and outs of the popular social media services. You could choose to focus classes on a particular group — you might want to teach seniors to keep in touch with their grandchildren and the rest of the family, for example.

Demonstrate to your students how they can set up profiles, share photos and play games. Restrict your team to just a couple of sites in the first class, and if you find there's enough ongoing interest, follow this up with another lesson that goes into more depth and covers more sites.
