TalkTalk to run tutorials on Safer Internet Day
The sessions will cover everything from safe online shopping to protection from cyber-bullying.TalkTalk will host a series of London-based web tutorial sessions to mark Safer Internet Day next month.
With the Europe-wide occasion taking place on February 8th 2011, the broadband bundle provider announced it will hold the masterclasses at its Customer Experience Centre in Soho.
Commercial director Tristia Clarke explained the lessons, which will be held at 16:00, 17:00 and 18:00 GMT, will give guidance on a range of subjects, including how to use social media sites and shop online safely.
Protection from cyber-bullying and avoiding web-based scams will also be covered at the event, which is open to TalkTalk's broadband customers and the general public.
"If you want to bring your laptop in, we'll even be able to scan it for viruses for you," Ms Clarke said.
TalkTalk is just one of a number of companies in the telecoms industry to have given its backing to Safer Internet Day, with the likes of O2 and Vodafone also supporting the event.
