This seminar described the ways that various social media platforms can help businesses reach a broad audience. It was an introduction for business owners, managers and planners who want to know which ones are appropriate for their business and what to expect from each one.

Six social media platforms were discussed – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn and Google+. You’ll find out about their user demographics and the way that each one can benefit your business.
