A quick browse of the Facebook statistics page makes it clear: Social Media is here to stay. As of July Facebook lists 750 million users. That equates to 1 in every 13 people on the planet. Of those users 50% log into the site everyday. The average user connects with over 80 community pages, groups or events. This means users are looking to their community’s business and organizations for information and events. People want their News Feed populated with what is happening around them. When tying this growth in Social Media with mobile devices (over 250 million Facebook users), it is clear that people are ready and willing to connect in an ever larger way.

Professional Development at UT Non-Credit is proud to offer classes to help people and small businesses to learn how to leverage these millions of users in order to improve marketing, research, communications, customer support, brand reputation, competitive intelligence, collaboration and knowledge capture.
