SOC Computer Course To Cover Social Media - Brevard, NC


November 2, 2017

Silvermont Opportunity Center has been hosting a free class on computer basics since mid-Septem-ber. Course instructor Eric Smith will be sharing tips for social media with participants at the senior center on Thursdays, Nov. 9 and Nov. 16, starting at 2 p.m.

Covering a few well-known platforms, including Facebook, Skype, Pinterest and Instagram, Smith will help participants log-in and enjoy these web-based forms of social interaction. If you have a personal smartphone, tablet or laptop, bring your device to follow along.

Whether you want to keep up with your kids and grandchildren’s daily posts and pictures on Facebook or learn how to video call your far-away friends and relatives for the holidays, this class can help you connect with loved ones you aren’t able to visit this season.
