Master Level High-Tech Webinars
The Digital Era is all-pervasive & anyone not online or lack skills to properly use it, may as well be living on another Planet.
Sacramento, CA. – In today’s digital era being online is no longer a luxury but a necessity and the mobile device is a key element for making this connection. There was a time when a person could acquire all necessary life skills with or without the Internet. But today those without Internet access have very little chance of seizing better opportunities and are not able to gain the qualifications that will improve their quality of life.
The same applies even when a person has Internet access, if they don’t have the skills to properly use it. Today, many employers won’t even consider someone without a useful online identity, let alone read a hand-written resume, portfolio or job application. Those that don’t have internet access and computer skills have been abandoned on the wrong side of the digital divide, with ever-diminishing prospects. (1)
Social City Net is launching ‘Master Level High-Tech Webinars’ on Indiegogo (12/14/2015), this service assist’s individual’s with the process of learning to use digital devices that connect to the Internet; a computer, game or mobile device (Smartphone). The Hybrid Webinar Service was specifically designed for easy access and effective instruction by utilizing proven Internet Communication Innovation and methodologies.
There are, however, some individuals that don’t require the internet, and in some ways such people can be considered fortunate. But for most people, their very existence and wellbeing relies on computers and smart devices. Technology is required even to find a job vacancy, not to mention holding onto steady employment. The digital divide has spread to the point that even elderly must upgrade their skill-set just to maintain adequate communication with medical services, family and pay bills. (2)
In fact, there are social inequalities all too familiar, that have carried over into the online environment such as: gender, race, age and health to become digital inequalities. Current studies & reports indicate, those who function better in the online digital realm and participate more fully in a digitally mediated social life, enjoy advantages over their digitally disadvantaged counterparts.

Currently there are millions of individuals, including seniors that are challenged by online technology and in serious need of assistance learning to use digital products. Volunteer organizations do the best they can but are overwhelmed and usually not local. Your support is needed to bring this service to life. (4)
