Facebook for Seniors
Want to learn social media (facebook, twitter, Instagram, etc.)?
The WPLD is offering a class to learn how these
various websites work
and how to set up your own account and get started.
We want to know if seniors, and/or anybody else, is interested.
If so, contact Tamra either by clicking on her name
or calling the WPLD.
We will provide Chromebooks during the class and you will need to
create a Google username/password to participate
(if you don't already have one).
