“Starting of the Final Year Project (FYP) journey was hard. But when time goes by, I realized that working on this topic for FYP is enjoyable and I have gained a great deal of knowledge on how social media works, at the same time, how marketing can be done on social media.” said Zhiyan, student leader of the project.

Another student, Kyaw said, "It has been a tiring but a fruitful and eventful journey. I learnt the fact that when everything seems all dead and buried, hold on to the very thing called faith. Overall, I have nothing but sheer delight and immense pride for being part of the FYP team."

For Xin En, it was quite a good learning experience, he said, "Through this final year project, I have learnt a great deal of things. Many things are not taught to us but we have to learn it independently and use resources like the internet to help us."

"During my FYP I have learned a lot on java programming language as we did our project in java. I also managed to learn how to use Application Programming Interface (API) for a few social media websites. Ultimately to me, my FYP is a meaning full one as it can be used out there in the IT world to help criminal investigator to solve their cases." said Jing Hui.
