KENNEWICK, Wash.--  The focus of this year's "Learn About Web" seminar shifted to using social media on the internet.  Business owners attended the second annual event to learn about how to grow their business by using the internet.

Speakers  talked about the importance of having a user-friendly website and getting your company to the top of search engines.  Organizer and partner for Ikon Marketing Group, Craig Sutton, stressed the importance of joining social networking sites because of their increasing popularity.  He explains, "Facebook, for instance, in just the last year alone, between the first month of 2009 and the 11th month of 2009, Facebook grew from roughly 100-million users to 350-million users."

Sutton says he and his business partner plan to take the "Learn About Web" seminar on the road, stopping in other cities in the northwest.
