Mastering Social Media (Adults Only) – Melissa Juren – Social networking is a relatively new phenomenon, with the first social media sites appearing in the late 1990s.  In the early 2000s, MySpace and LinkedIn soared to popularity.  Now, social networking platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat dominate.  Whether you want to break into that world or have a child who is already a part of it, Mastering Social Media is the class you need.  In it, we will discuss the most popular social media platforms, who is using them, how to create and manage an account, and the details about their inner workings that you need to know.
