    Description

    Are you interested in learning more about Facebook, but have concerns about using the social media platform? Are you worried about the best ways to access it, protecting yourself while using it, or actually finding people with whom to connect? Are you overwhelmed wondering where to even begin? Do you suspect that Facebook may not even be for you, but you’d still like to experience it demonstrated to be sure?

    Mystic Access is here to help with our three-session event, Making Connections and Having Fun Accessibly Via Facebook. It is taught by Kim Nova, who has spent more than a decade using the platform, and has watched it grow, change, and vary widely in terms of its accessibility over the years. There’s quite a learning curve to using it, especially in the beginning when you’re just learning how it works. However, once you get started and figure out how you want to access it, there’s a lot you can do to have fun utilizing Facebook for both work and play.

Session One will be available on Monday, February 7, 2022, Session Two on February 14, and session Three on February 21. The audio files will be found on the Downloads page in your Mystic Access account. You will be notified via email when each session is ready for download.

    Get your Questions Answered Live

    Have questions? We’re sure you will, and are offering a live 90-minute Q&A session to try to answer them for you. If you can’t be there live, the session will be recorded and available via the downloads page in your Mystic Access account. The timing for this session isn’t set in stone, but we’re anticipating an early March 2022 date.

    DAISY Navigable Option

    After the event concludes we’ll create a fully-navigable DAISY book of the content which event participants receive for free.

    Note that while we do plan to turn this into a product after the event, we cannot guarantee that the price will remain the same as it is currently. Also to make sure your specific questions are answered, we encourage you to join the event.
