Public Invited to Learn About Social Media Do’s and Don’ts

Hodges University News

From Facebook to Twitter to Instagram, social media is everywhere. While an effective and useful tool for individuals and businesses, it can lead to issues of identity fraud and more if used incorrectly.

On May 10 from 3:00-4:00 p.m., Hodges University’s Identity Fraud Institute will host “Social Media Do’s and Don’ts.” Led by Carrie Kerskie, director of Identity Fraud Institute at Hodges, she will discuss the possible dangers associated with social media, as well as how to protect social media accounts using privacy settings. In this one-hour workshop, participants will learn how to set up privacy settings, how to recognize red flags and the steps to take in the event an account is compromised.

“Social media is a great tool to keep in touch with friends and family anywhere in the world. But if not used properly, it could expose you to computer viruses, identity theft and more,” said Kerskie.

The workshop will be held on Hodges’ Naples campus, which is located at 2655 Northbrooke Drive, Naples, FL 34119. The cost to attend is $25 and advanced registration is required.
