Social Media and Survivors

This one-hour webinar covers the most common social media platforms used by Australians. We will discuss how DFV perpetrators commonly misuse social media and what can be done to support victim-survivors. We’ll also look at the data these platforms collect, store and share, and cover how victim-survivors can maximise the built-in privacy and security settings, use the abuse-reporting features and potentially document abuse.
