Social Media for Beginners

Welcome to the Social Media for Beginners short course. The course covers the basics of social media to those who are less familiar with the platforms and those who may not be utilising the platforms to their full potential. The idea is to give the learner a “Zero to Hundred” experience so they can be confident to navigate the platforms on their own. 

One can be using social media to tell stories, promote their products and services and interact with peers in their field or expertise. This self-directed course introduces you to the basics of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. There are way more social media platforms used by people for business networking, general entertainment and many other persuasions. Being acquainted with these three makes it quite easy for you to understand and navigate various other platforms.
