More than 500 people filled a large conference room at the University Plaza Waterfront Hotel in Stockton today for a free seminar by Facebook Inc. on best practices for small businesses. The two-hour seminar and networking opportunity was made possible through a special partnership with local business organizations.

"The world is going digital and you need to be online to reach the people trying to find you," said Yount. She illustrated the strategies small businesses can utilize Facebook to bring people to company pages with key objectives being: building awareness; bringing people into a physical store; and increasing online sales. "You can reach the right audience and turn them into loyal customers."
