Facebook is one of the most popular social platforms, one that enables sharing and conversations. It excels at connecting people at a local and global scale. Facebook was initially used as a platform to keep in touch with friends and family, but the addition of public Pages, and public/private Groups, has made it appealing to professionals and enthusiasts worldwide.
You can do the following on Facebook:
The following Lynda.com courses and videos will provide you with information on Facebook Profiles, Groups and Pages. Login with your Seneca ID to view them.
You can join Facebook Groups to keep in touch with your professional network, exchange ideas, resources, and engage in conversations specific to the interests of that group. Groups can be public, private or secret.
Public groups are open to anyone with a FB account. Users can request to join a private group or be invited by its administrator. Secret groups can be joined by invitation only.
Content shared by public group members can be seen by anyone, while private/secret groups' posts are only visible to members of that group.
