TUESDAY 5 APRIL: Facebook and Instagram - Practical demonstration of key tools and features
Presenter: Michael Tavares
930am - 1230pm
Facebook and Instagram - Practical demonstration of key tools and features
The first hour of this workshop will be a recap of Michael's popular Introduction to Social Media workshop for those who missed it in February and will help you decide which platforms are right for your organisation.
The next two hours will have a more specific focus on Facebook/Instagram and will involve live demonstrations for using the main features of these platforms. This will be an opportunity to see in action some of the features discussed in February, including targeted posting, boosting posts, using the 'insights' tool and creating a video story. This course will be run on Zoom so we can follow Michael's screen as he talks us through how to use these features.
(If these are platforms you use, we recommend you downloading the apps and signing in so that you can follow along and have a play with some of these features during the seminar).
