Yesterday, on my personal blog, I posted a piece about a recent appearance on Scotland Tonight discussing Facebook’s 10th Birthday. Due to a fuzzy head, I hadn’t really responded in a way I’d hoped to whilst on LIVE TV, so I did a little “do ever” and expanded some more thoughts about the platform and why I “love and loathe it in equal measure”.
Also on the subject of Facebook, was another, great, video from Veritasium posted this week. Love this guy’s work on the subject of Facebook.
GLATITUDE’S NEW SOCIAL MEDIA TRAINING COURSES
Since arriving back to Glasgow, (after five, fun weeks in Silicon Valley), it’s been nose-to-the-grindstone working on a half day and full day social media training course every day since.
I’ve spent countless hours sourcing material, reading articles, listening to podcasts to try to come up with the most relevant topics, stats and apps to cover on these two courses.
INTRO TO EMERGING TECHNOLOGY
This new course is aimed at people who are brand new to technology and social media. It’s very much aimed at newbies to Social Media platforms and applications like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Blogging and the Cloud. We’ll also look at tools like HootSuite, Spundge
It can be run as a three-hour, broad overview class, or a six-hour more in depth training session.
INTRO TO SOCIAL MEDIA
This course covers much of what the Intro to Emerging Tech course covers, but covers more tools like Survey Monkey and participants will leave with a social media strategy they can then leave and apply in their own business or organization. This course is a full day course.
NOTE: These can be delivered 1-2-1 or as part of a group. 50% funding may be available for either course. Ask for more details.
