Question from Christine S.
Is this class more theory-based or more practical? I do not know how to use Twitter, Instagram, Facebook - and now find in my job search that basic social media knowledge is expected. I hope to learn how to use them - not why they are effective. Thoughts from the community? Thanks!
Answer from Sarah S. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
One of the takeaways in this class is understanding what types of social media platforms are available and how they are used. Case studies and tactics will be presented throughout the session but you will also gain hands-on knowledge in the class breakout sessions.
