Perils of social media subject of session

Social Media Awareness for Community and Parents presenter will talk about mobile communications, online content evaluation and more

With all the new social media out there and the new types that seem to keep popping up, it’s hard to keep up, or to know how far information can travel online or how much privacy you have, or don’t have.

In an effort to keep the public and parents up to date on social media and its issues, the RCMP, Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, Northwest Community College and others are presenting Social Media Awareness for Community and Parents with Jesse Miller of Mediated Reality, who talks to schools and communities and companies on topics of social media awareness, mobile communications, and online content evaluation.

Presentations also look at the oblivious dangers to connecting users to the internet through social media and mobile devices and understanding how social media runs in parallel with reality.

Miller challenges audiences to evaluate their online profiles and assess privacy and connectivity issues.

He combines his diverse background in community policing volunteer management and online behaviour analysis for his presentations.

Social Media Awareness for Community and Parents presented by Jesse MiIler is at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 26 at the REM Lee Theatre and it is free.

There will be a question and answer session following the presentation at the REM Lee Theatre.
