Social Media for Social Good - Talk 2

Speaker: Mia Garlick, Director of Policy at Facebook
Moderator: Prof. Paul Yip, Director of HKJC Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention

People use social media such as Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them. Meanwhile, the public are also concerned with online safety issues, such as how to respect others’ rights and how to help a friend in need. Mia Garlick, Director of Policy, who co-ordinates safety initiatives for Facebook across the Asia-Pacific region, will share her insider's views on how to stay safe and smart online and how Facebook can work with local NGOs and contribute to local community development. Mia will be joined by Prof. Paul Yip, Director of HKJC Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention at the University of Hong Kong, to meet students, scholars and NGO leaders for the first online safety workshop in Hong Kong.
