Social media has become an integral part of life on a ship. However, there is a responsibility that comes with the crew's opportunity to access and use social media; this is rarely discussed or questioned.

This course is about the responsible use of social media. It presents some irresponsible social media practices and their corresponding legal charges. It also provides tips on how to utilise social media in an objective and responsible manner.
