Are you thinking it is time to unplug from social media? Quitting Facebook, Instagram and other social media is hard. You’ve invested a lot of time there. You have neatly organized photo albums. You use it for work and to keep up with friends and family. You don’t want to lose all comments
and discussions.Whether you have just grown tired of social media, exhausted from arguing with friends and family over politics and other issues, or the Cambridge Analytica scandal alerted you to the fact that Facebook is still sharing way too much of your information despite your perfectly tweaked privacy settings.

This webinar is a guide to help you creative an effective toolbox to create a program at your library or help users trying to quit effectively.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:
– Clear your Facebook history
– Download your Facebook archive
– Deactivate or delete your account

We’ll also examine some alternatives to quitting and what you can do with the archive to preserve your Facebook photos and memories.

Bonus: Attending this webinar may lead to improved well-being and increased productivity.
