Social Media Marketing Class

I just took the Social Media Marketing Class at St. Charles Community College and it was a lot of fun. You will learn how to promote yourself or your business using Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, WordPress, Pinterest, e-mail marketing and a few others. The class is good and I think is helpful to everyone because this is the future and It looks like it will be staying around for a while so you might as well learn how to use them now. The class was fun but the assignments are to hard to keep up on since the teacher does not have exact due dates, schedule or your grade.
