‘The Power of Social Media’
Explore the impact of social media on the world and learn how to put it to good use in everyday life.
Social networks have emerged over the past 10 years in various forms to play a fundamental role in our lives. But do we actually understand these networks? And are we using them in the right ways?
This course will teach you not just about the qualities and differences between social networks but also the impact they can have on our lives.
