Now that we’ve set up accounts with Facebook, Twitter and Google, it’s time to make the most of them! One of the most popular uses for social media is sharing photos and videos you’ve taken. Rather than having to carry around a physical photo album or DVDs you’ve created, you can now just upload them to the internet and they can be viewed at any time, from anywhere. You can share your entire photo collection with friends on Facebook, for example, and they can share theirs with you.

Course Outline

You will be looking for ways to quickly and easily share photos, videos and message with others using existing Facebook, Google (Gmail) and/or Twitter accounts. You may have set these these while attending the Introduction to Social Media Part 2, or created them independently of the Everyone Connected Workshops.

Topics include:

  • How to upload both individual photos and entire photo albums to Facebook
  • Adding photos and web addresses to Tweets (Twitter account)
  • Creating your own YouTube channel
  • Uploading videos to it to share it with the world.

Course Outcome

  • Upload individual photos as well as collections of photos to Facebook for sharing with friends and family
  • Attach a picture to a tweet, which is a handy way of quickly sharing a funny or interesting snapshot
  • Create a channel on YouTube, and populate it with a collection of videos you’ve created.
