A basic "how to" for engaging customers, friends and colleagues
BURNSVILLE, Minn., May 09, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
With more than 500 million users worldwide, Facebook is the dominant force in social media. Every month, Facebook users spend more than 700 billion minutes on the site. For local businesses, the question is whether their customers and prospects are among this vast audience, and if so how do they reach and engage them?
Frontier Communications (NYSE:FTR, news, filings) will host a FREE live one-hour webcast to examine ways companies and organizations can build a successful presence on Facebook. The webinar will be held Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 10 a.m. CDT. More information and registration details are available at www.frontier.com/facebook. A replay of the webcast will also be available following the web event at www.frontier.com/facebook.

"During Frontier's recent FREE webcast on social media, we received many questions about how businesses and organizations can best tap into Facebook's enormous potential. This webcast will look exclusively at Facebook, best practices for using it, and practical tips for Facebook novices and veterans alike."
The webcast will feature experts Chris Treadaway, founder and chief executive office of Notice Technologies, and Albert Maruggi, founder and president of Provident Partners.
