Social Media 101-- Open Your World!

Posted on 05/07/20

Have you heard of Instagram, but don't know how to use it? How about Facebook, Twitter or Zoom? AARP Vermont and Technology for Tomorrow have put together a short video that covers these social media applications and a few more, explaining the benefits and basics. These applications can truly open your world and connect you with family, friends, entertainment, education, news and so much more. Watch the short video (17 minutes) below and enlighten yourself. There won't be a quiz!

More in-depth live sessions on Facebook and Twitter will be held later this month. These will be live, interactive sessions with a small group and allow for Q & A. A more hands-on workshop. Register early as space is limited. See below:
