Social media platforms are websites and apps
that allow people to create and share content and connect with other people online. The Department of Human Services has a number
of Facebook pages which we use to share the latest news and information to different audiences. We encourage people to ask us general questions
on our Facebook page. Our team will answer them as quickly as possible,
saving you time on the phone and from going into a service centre. If you’d like to connect with us on social
media, there’s some steps you need to take first. You’ll need to access a computer, mobile
phone or another device that connects to the internet. To create a social media account, you’ll
need an email address or a mobile phone number. If you’d like to create an email address,
use a search engine like Google to find an email provider. Once you’ve found the one that’s right
for you, follow the steps to create a new email address. You should never give out your email password,
or any other passwords. If you don’t want to create an email address,
you need a mobile phone that you can access. To create a Facebook account, type facebook.com
into your internet browser. On the main page of the Facebook website,
you’ll see the heading ‘Create a new account’. Underneath that heading, there’s some fields
you need to complete with information about yourself. This includes your first and last name, your
email address or your mobile phone number, your date of birth and your gender. You’ll also need to choose a password. Make sure you read the Facebook Terms and
the Facebook Data Policy before proceeding. Once you’ve entered your details and read
the terms and conditions, click ‘Create Account'. To finish creating your account, you’ll
need to confirm your email or mobile phone number. Depending on which one you entered, Facebook
will either send you an email or a text message. Follow the steps in your email or text message
to verify your account. You can log in using your email address or
mobile phone number and the password you entered. Now you’re ready to keep in touch with family,
reconnect with long-lost friends, and stay up-to-date with news from our department. Keep an eye out for our next video that shows
you how to officially ‘Like’ a Facebook page. For more information about how the Department
