Kaplan International Colleges, a leading provider of English courses,
has reached a social media milestone by passing 75,000 fans on their
global Facebook page. 
Since 2010, Kaplan's Facebook page has seen a strong growth in
engagement and the number of fans has rapidly increased. This month
the company celebrated reaching 75,000 on their global Facebook page,
just a few months after hitting the 50,000 mark. 
Last year was particularly eventful for the Kaplan social media team,
thanks to the launch of photo competitions, the Kaplan Journal and
the #KaplanExperience promotion on Instagram, which has created
student winners from around the world. 
The Kaplan social media team are looking forward to the year ahead
and lots of activities have already been planned, including the
Kaplan Talent Awards, which will encourage students from every
language school to share their talents and skills with the rest of
the world. 
Hazel Marie Francis, social media assistant, said: "We're very happy
and grateful to reach 75,000 fans. We love speaking to current and
prospective students on a daily basis. We work towards creating a
page, which is run for them. 
"This involves sharing and creating content and providing information
that they find engaging and useful. We're so excited about moving
forward in the New Year and have lots of fun projects that can
involve all of our fans." 
Kaplan has a Facebook account for each of their colleges and
countries in multiple languages, totalling the number of fans to more
than 200,000. Each page aims to engage with students and Kaplan
alumni, as well as those who are interested in travelling and
learning English.
