Like it or not, Facebook isn't going anywhere anytime soon. It will continue to shift, change, morph and evolve as a social-networking platform, but its ubiquity for civilians and businesses alike is here to stay.
So, what better time than now to start embracing it? Or what about next week? The Women's Business Development Center will be holding a webinar on how to build your bran through Facebook on Halloween from noon 'til 1 p.m., and it's aimed specifically at small businesses looking to boost their brands through social-media marketing.
A couple of things about this event and why it's a standout among these types of webinars, sessions, talks, etc: It's free, it's only an hour which means it's easily digestible and it's going to be extremely practical because of all that.
