Staying Safe with Social Media - free webinar now online by Thomas MacEntee

"I wish everyone had to watch this seminar to be on social media!" is how Donna, one of our viewers today responded to Thomas MacEntee's webinar, Staying Safe with Social Media. I completely agree. Thomas covered topics such as:
  • Is your birth date public?
  • Ways you can stay safe
  • Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Namechk, and more
  • Do you really know your friend's friends?
  • What you should avoid online
  • Should you click on the links in an email to accept a friend request?
  • What about copyright?
  • 10 rules for creating a hacker-resistant password
  • And more
The Q/A session was just as good. After Thomas demonstrated his password-creation methods, one viewer wrote, "that's the best trick I've seen in a long time."
