Social Media Images

Day 52  in our 90-Day Social Media Success Challenge for Dance Studios…

As I promised yesterday, today I’d like to share with you some of the differences and similarities between Facebook and Linkedin. It is important to understand what each social network has to offer you, and the differences between the two.
