This is an amazing class; a lot of it was common sense but it's great to have someone reiterate your reasoning. Got to become familiar with a lot of social media platforms and understood why some platforms are really not the best choice if you want to keep a professional extension to your agency.

Very knowledgeable instructors, and great information that was appropriate to an advanced level course. My only suggestion would be that there was so much information to be touched on that a two-day course might have been more appropriate to give each topic the attention that it deserved. Overall, a great course!
