Social media is growing exponentially and shows no sign of slowing down. Today, over 4.20 billion of all Internet users are also social media users. In addition, most users now use two or more social media sites daily and access sites using multiple devices. In the early days of social media, many businesses did not see the value of having a social media strategy. Many businesses did not participate at all on social media sites or their efforts were unorganized and consisted of random postings on various social sites. Because of the tremendous growth, businesses today should not ignore social media. Instead, they need to review the social media landscape and make a real effort to integrate social media into their business practices. The Social Media Strategist course will give you an overview of what social media is and start to introduce you to the complex landscape that makes up social media today.

Technological innovations have changed the world, making it easier to do many tasks. Technology becomes commodified with time, and higher-order technology either creates a new ecosystem or disrupts the existing one. Any technological change occurs in waves that starts with an innovation and changes the existing way of working by generating a surge of development. While some innovations simply provide an alternative way of performing a task, others cause such a fundamental change that it is impossible to revert to the previous method.
