The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning at Hodges University will present a free lecture series on social media. The sessions will be held at the Naples campus of Hodges University, 2655 Northbrooke Drive, off Immokalee Road, just east of I-75.
This three week series will explore the history of social media, what types of social media are being used today, how social media is used, and what the effects are on people and on society. In week one, participants will view the film “Social Network,” based on the development of Facebook. In week two, participants will hear from an expert in the field of social media. Shelley Osterhout will lead a discussion about the types of social media being used (Facebook, Twitter, Link’d In, etc.), and how social media is used in today’s world. Finally, participants will finish the series in week three by looking at the behavioral and societal effects social media is having in our world. This informative lecture series will be held on July 14, 21, and 28, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm each week.
The session is free of charge and reservations are not required. For more information, please contact Sarah Eldridge at (239) 598-6210.
