Is this course for me?

Social media refers to websites and mobile apps that people use to stay connected virtually, with friends, family, and co-workers. This way of connecting is also known as online networking. Social media can help you grow your online network as well as your career when you present yourself professionally. 

Some of the more well-known social media websites are Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. This course focuses on these sites, but the concepts covered in this course apply to all social media sites and online activity.
