Participants will build their social media profile in a computer lab. The course will be led by a web solutions professional. If you are a consumer business, Facebook is the place to start. If you are in the business-to-business sector, LinkedIn may be the best place to begin. Or, come to both and learn the intricacies of each platform.

Registration is limited to the first 20 so sign up early! The fee for each class is $29.00 if pre-registered, $35.00 at the door. Registrants for both workshops may receive the pre-registration discount for both.
