Staying safe on Facebook – Friday 28 June at 10.30am

With over 1 billion daily active users, Facebook is the world’s leading social networking site. It helps people stay connected, especially when they’re in different parts of the world. However, it has also been the subject of some privacy concerns. In this webinar, we show you how when used with proper care, Facebook can be an enjoyable source of entertainment and a great way to connect.

The FREE 1 hour webinar will cover:

  • What you can do on Facebook
  • Taking control of your privacy settings
  • Some common Facebook scams
  • How advertising works on Facebook.

The presentation is  offered by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner and is being hosted by the Burdekin Library at the Ideas@108 space via a web session. You don’t need to bring anything unless you want to take notes during the presentation. Although designed to help older Australians stay safer online, everyone is welcome. Bookings can be made at the Burdekin Library at 108 Graham Street or by phoning 4783 9970.

This is the last one in the current series of webinar presentations on cyber safety.

Show holiday closure

The Burdekin Library and Home Hill Branch Library will both be closed on Wednesday 26 June for the Burdekin Show Holiday. Both branches will reopen at their usual Thursday opening time on 27 June.

Enjoy the Show!
