What is social media and how is it relevant to me? Do I need accounts on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter – what’s the primary difference between these sites? What about Pinterest, FourSquare, Skype and Tumbler? What are sensible safe practices to follow when going online and posting information? Should I upgrade to a smart phone? A tablet? Or some other communication gadget – and how do I decide which one is best for me? How do I learn to use all the fancy features of the device?
