Hi everyone!
Welcome to the blog for MKTG4250 – Social and Online Marketing (Fall 2017). Throughout the semester we will be using this forum to exchange links, videos, ideas, etc. that are relevant to the class. I encourage you to post any content related to online marketing and social media that you find interesting. More importantly, I encourage you to comment on the content posted by others in the class. The goal of your posts should be to enhance the learning experience, and exchange ideas that we might not have time to discuss in depth during class. Please remember that as with in-class participation, quality will be valued over quantity.
