    Do you have a Facebook account? Feel like you're at a disadvantage when people start discussing the President's Twitter habits? Whether you've tried integrating social media into your daily life or personally feel daunted by the prospect, there's no denying that understanding social media is crucial to understanding the flow of information today. Whether you want to use these tools yourself or just understand what the appeal is, Harbor Media can show you the ins and outs of such platforms as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. We can show you how to use one or all to your benefit - personally, academically, and, perhaps even professionally if you choose. This class is FULL; we hope to offer it again soon.
