While social media promotes the exchange of ideas and helps people and businesses build relationships, it can, if misused, seriously damage an organization’s reputation and bottom line. As technology continues to evolve, your organization may be challenged to provide training that both encourages the positive, productive use of social media and offers guidance on responsible networking. This course provides your employees with an overview of social media – including the opportunities and risks it presents – and encourages them to use good judgment online, to protect themselves, your organization and others.
