February Luncheon: Social Media – Being Safe and Savvy

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Craigslist, and other social networking sites continue to gain popularity. They make it easy to re-connect, stay in touch, and even do business. Posts, status updates, comments, instant messages, video uploads, tweets, and texts have become a regular part of our lives. However, privacy concerns and crimes should make us more careful about the information we share and the protections we put in place.

Join WIBU on Wednesday, February 20th from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM for our monthly program and luncheon at the Horizon Convention Center.

Our February luncheon speaker, Fletcher Price, will share how our publicly available information can be abused and offer tips to consider as we work to protect our privacy and safety while still participating in all the good things social media has to offer.

The presentation will include:

  • Real world examples of someone using social media and publicly available information on the internet to compromise someone’s private life
  • Shared Information and Security Questions
  • Common Sense Guidelines and Advice
  • Password Suggestions

Fletcher Price received his BA in Political Science from Ball State University, an MS in Information and Communication Sciences from Ball State University, and is currently pursuing an MBA at Butler University. Fletcher has a history of supporting WIBU, having volunteered several years with the ATHENA luncheon.
