Social Media Resources

Social media is the term used for websites, digital tools and applications that allow users to communicate and share information, content, ideas and other matter.

Some of the most popular social media tools and platforms are:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Flickr
  • Snapchat
  • LinkedIn

Blogging platforms are also part of the social media world and they allow people to write short articles, diaries and journals on any topic. Social media is a great way to communicate and express views, and it is also a means for businesses to enhance brand awareness.

As with all online applications, there is a downside to social media. Criminals and others with a nefarious intent exist online as well as offline. It is therefore wise to learn how to stay safe on social media and this includes using strong passwords for all accounts, not using the same password for multiple accounts, choosing online friends wisely and taking care not to share sensitive data such as personal details and bank information.
