Course is generally good; I did learn a lot. The presenters are good, though not always great; I think they could be more engaging. There is a sense that there is a bit of repetition; perhaps this is not such a bad thing as it can lead to more retention, but it is notable at times. Finally, there are few examples; if you are starting from a palce of not having used the social media platforms much, sometimes features and formats are thrown around that could really use visual and video examples. The assignments don't always tell you they will be much more rewarding if you choose a product or brand (real or invented) before starting; make sure you decide what the product is before starting to plan any slice of a campaign! This is true for all these courses.

Through this course, it really taught me a lot when it comes to social media platforms and content strategies. All the lessons are essential and very informative.

Peer review is difficult at first; It is like a baby thesis. But it will really help you to think outside the box and learn to apply everything that you learn from syllabus.

Thank you so much for offering this course here in Coursera. It will help everyone to gain more knowledge and for career growth as well.
