This 2 hour evening workshop provides the time and space:

  • to discuss general esafety concerns and learn practical esafety tips

There will be a step-by-step guide emailed to you after the evening so that you can put into practice what you have learnt and use this to set Facebook privacy as you wish to have it.

What others say about the workshop:

“I enjoyed all of it: lots of opportunity for discussion and questions”

” I have learnt why social sites are so popular and that they are not frightening if managed appropriately”

“The workshop has opened my eyes to Facebook as a non-user whose children are beginning to use this.  It has highlighted some important issues for me to look into and go through with my kids”

“I appreciate the effort that has been put into this and the fact that while I am naive about Facebook, I didn’t feel out of place with my limited knowledge”

“An excellent presentation”
