Pinterest describes itself as “The World’s catalog of ideas”. They also describe themselves as a “visual bookmarking tool that helps you discover and save creative ideas”. Pinterest is a fun, free website and mobile app that allows registered users to upload, save, sort, and manage images, known as PINS, and other content through collections of PINS known as PIN BOARDS or simply BOARDS.

The EOSMS Pinterest lessons will be launched on Saturday 17th June 2017.  You can advance purchase here today and get immediate access to the main course lessons (which teach you about starting your safer social media journey, what security settings you need to look for and why you should apply those types of settings) and then your HOW TO lessons for Pinterest will be applied automatically on your account when they launch.

To learn about safer interactions and protecting yourself on Pinterest we give you:

  • 6 lessons
  • 2 hours of learning (including learning what they possible risks are, what security settings will help to reduce those risks and how they help to reduce the risks)
  • 30 minutes of “HOW TO” lessons, to assist with applying the settings;
  • lessons on things that you might do, that might put you at greater risk; AND
  • ways that you can still achieve the outcomes you are looking for on Pinterest, without the added risk!

In under 3 hours time you could be enjoying a much safer and much more positive Pinterest experience!

Note: The course is designed to teach you what settings to look for on social media sites, so, in some cases, if there is not an actual security setting on the site you are using (that we believe you need) we have provided another way of achieving the same outcome as some sites settings offer.  In other words – we’ve got you there a tricky way! 🙂

This means, you are learning about security settings in general AND what the site you are using may be lacking.   ….AND you are securing your account as best as can possibly be done!  HOORAY!

Purchase of this course gives you one month access to complete the course and full access to our members area, where you will see any updates and extra information on general social media safety issues.

People come to the school and tell us not to post and what happens if your do etc, but you showed us what to do, so we can still post but fully understand how to best protect ourselves.

…I learnt the importance of securing my social media profiles and how I could easily do it. The workshops were very easy to understand, explaining step by step how to apply it in my Facebook.  Read full testimonial here

After leaving the workshop, not only was I better equipped to clean up my own Facebook page, but I have started working with carers to take more responsibility for the social media use of the children and young people I work with.
