    Since late 2009, Cisco Networking Academy (NetAcad), one of Cisco’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs has been present on various social media networks. The earliest presence was seen on the rising social network of that time: Facebook.

    In late 2010, NetAcad’s Facebook page hit its first 100,000 likes. After this milestone, the Facebook page continued its growth, following the growth of the number of students in the NetAcad Program.

    Today, NetAcad’s Facebook page hit a half a million likes (fans). Read more about Networking Academy's milestone in social media engagement.
