This Introduction to Social Media training class is an overview class targeting managers and decision makers. The course addresses what social media is and how businesses can use it. Unlike other social media courses, we do not try to convince you that you must be using social media. Rather, this social media course gives you the tools and knowledge you need to make that decision for yourself. The class introduces social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Google+, YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram, and social media tools such as blogs and wikis.

This is a great class for the beginner as well as the intermediate since one of the benefits of using Webucator is the ability to take the class again and cover something you might not have understood. Thanks!
