This course covered a broad range of topics for Facebook business users, from setting up a page, to advertising. Recommended!

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It has given me a greater understanding of the possibilities of Facebook as not just another social media channel, but a great marketing opportunity for organisations to use. The style and pace of the course was just right for the day, very good.

The course has given me many new ideas as to how we can use the platform to engage our customers and how we can develop our existing plans.
