If someone wants to learn how to really use Facebook..

Posted by novoscene on June 22, 2009

Workshop: Facebook, Privacy and Filtering:

We usually just cover arts and culture on this blog — but here’s some tech for a change. This is a cheap social networking workshop for anyone who can use it. It’s hosted by a downtown consulting group called Techliminal:

This is their pitch: “As the leading social networking site in the world, Facebook currently boasts of 200 million  users.  This means that your friends, family, and co-workers are probably already using Facebook to chat, network, keep up with old pals, play games, read the news, join causes, and more.  If you have a Facebook account, you may be wondering how to turn off some of the incessant, trivial updates from friends with too much free time.  Or perhaps you are just now learning how to post, and want to make sure your high school enemy or work stalker doesn’t read your updates.

In this 90-minute workshop, you will learn how Facebook displays your profile information, your updates, photos, and more.  Then, you will learn how you can control what is displayed about you, and what you see on your news feed.

Please plan to arrive by 5:30.  The lesson will begin promptly at 5:45, and will allow for enough time for you to try out anything we demonstrate.

Bring your laptop if you have one.  We have several computers that you can use while you’re here, but it’s always better to work using your own tools.”

When: June 22 & July 6, 5.30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Where: 268 14th Street
How much:  $5 to $10 sliding scale
