  1. I really liked reading your post!. Quallity content. With such a valuable blog i believe you deserve to be ranking even higher in the search engines ­čÖé

  2. These days when social media reigns supreme on the internet, businesses whether big or small must start to consider formulating an acceptable and fair social media policy so as never to be caught off guard when the need arises.

    As a head department, I pushed for this even last year and this year we already adopted a policy pertaining to online use and social media usage for all employees and executives to follow. This is really very important.
