You are using Facebook to keep and organize your digital memories, and it has us archivists a little worried! In this hands-on workshop at the Mt. Pleasant Library, you will download an archived copy of your Facebook profile to explore what actually gets saved (we'll provide laptops and flash drives if you cannot bring your own).
Then, we’ll discuss what rights you have to your content even after death, how you can use some of Facebook’s features to enhance your archive, and what files you should probably keep somewhere else.
The book club will not meet in July 2016, and will resume in August.
The Mt. Pleasant Neighborhood Library Book Club meets the fourth Thursday of every month in Conference Room 1 on the lower level. We alternate between fiction and nonfiction each month, with books selected and voted on by members.
