Learn how to use social media for reporting. We’ll learn the basics of how social media platforms are used for reporting, and we’ll learn how these different tools can be used in the implementation of reporting strategies and audience engagement. Students should have a basic understanding of platforms like Facebook and Twitter – no additional experience required.
