Social Media Marketing

This fall semester, I included myself in a class that dealt with social media marketing. This class helps future business men succeed in social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Google Plus. Students get hands on experience from a well instructed teacher to help them organize with the social media sites. They will learn about and creat blog posts from Linkedin or WordPress. They will also get hands on experience with businesses from the local area.
