We continue to use social media as a means of reaching more people with our quality research content. Last year, we achieved great success with audience growth, engagements and reach. In the first quarter of 2018, we have sought to build on the momentum, despite significant changes in Facebook policy. Below are a few highlights of our social media work for Q1 2018.

ACET’s Facebook page currently has 21,908 likes. This represents a growth of 1,749 from the end December audience of 20,159 and a 268 percent increase over first quarter 2017.

All our platforms saw growth in audience. In the second quarter, we intend to employ more innovative audio-visual content to drive our social media engagements.
