Social Media in the Workplace Course Overview

People are feeling the need to be updated at all times. It has become a time-eater, and businesses are quickly becoming aware of the drain it can have on productivity.

People love to share, but they need to know what is alright to share and what should not be sent out. Understanding Social Media is about communicating the right way. We are beginning to communicate more through electronic means than face-to-face.

Talking on a phone has been replaced increasingly with SMS (texting.) Social media channels are becoming the main form of communication, and you will realise how Social media and the Workplace can work together.

People love to stay connected, so it’s no wonder that social media sites continue to grow in popularity.

However, with social media sites going mobile and being open 24 hours a day, people can often forget where to draw the line, especially at work. Companies should examine how this media affects them and how they can implement ways to move forward with technology without letting it interfere with productivity.
