Everyday sites like Facebook and Twitter are playing bigger and bigger roles in our life.
Thanks to stories like the one involving Manti Te'o, the college football star who was duped online, we saw how difficult navigating through those sites can be. That's why officials at West Virginia University are offering free classes.
The classes are open to anyone and will take a look at problems folks might come across using them.
The classes are free and start February 4. They'll cover anything from online relationships to cyber bullying.
"These are things that are happening in everyone's life," Matt Martin, the chair of communication studies at WVU, said. "We're dealing with current event and topic that are very timely."
