What social media networks do you actually ENJOY working with?

by 40 replies
I've seen lots of conversation around here about what social media networks people find useful for marketing, but which social media networks do you actually enjoy working with? Do you use these networks for personal use as well?

Personally I'm a huge fan of Twitter because it has a great community of writers and I enjoy using Facebook to keep in touch with relatives across the ocean, but I haven't really gotten into any other social media networks yet.

    What I enjoy working with is a totally different story to what I 'need' to use fo for my clients.

    Personally, I absolutely rate Instagram above all else for its ease of use and simplicity and the fact that the visual element allows me to scroll through without having to read a bucket load of useless content.

    I use social media as an outlet and way to defrag for a few minutes in between projects and this element is really something I love about Instagram.

    I don't enjoy using Twitter or Snapchat and I am not a massive fan of You Tube - I want my content tailored and I want to see a few minutes of the favourite people I am following in one easy, quick stream.

      I love looking at Instagram but I personally don't use it that much because I do all my work from home and I rarely have things to take pictures of. Well, other than my cat, who is surprisingly good at avoiding having her picture taken.

    I'm also a big fan of Twitter for creating personal connections with other professionals, but I haven't yet found it to be particularly useful for finding clients. I suspect it's more useful for actual physical product sales.

      I honestly haven't found many clients through Twitter either but I have connected with many professionals in the industry and I've learned a lot from all of them.

    I rate Facebook and Pinterest as one of my personal favorites for marketing purposes. Especially, Facebook has huge community following and gives you an opportunity to reach across several demographics of your choice.

    How to utilize it?

    Well it depends on you and your business. I have been involved in a merchandise business for some time and I always achieve effective conversions when I use short video clips and images for advertisements. As a matter of fact I started up with the help of my friends on Facebook who were a major source to spread the word about my business to other people belonging to the same age group. You can achieve maximum turnover if you are successful in networking and communicating with other people on this social media platform.

    Cheers

    Facebook and Twitter are definitely my favorites networks, they were the first networks which I used for my personal life, and since then they have really conquered my heart, if you know what I mean.

    Ive been an early user of both networks, and its really been quite a ride to see them grow and change since they were created.

    For working, those two are also my favorite networks, I believe they are the easiest places where you can grow an account from scratch, and their users there are very receptive to new content and brands, specially if you offer innovative ideas.

    Youtube is my third favorite network, I also started using it at early stages, although I didnt create any content or anything there, I only watched what other users uploaded, I remember when I used to spent hours and hours watching clips from favorite shows there. I must say though that Youtube can be a hard place for working, you need to have great skills and very innovative ideas for running a successful account, and also a lot of patience, editing a 2 minutes video can take up to four hours, a lot of time!

    Im also starting to use Pinterest, its also a great network, with an awesome community, I think its like a gold mine, with a lot of amazing ideas and experiences waiting to be discovered, I can spend hours scrolling through pins!, and for work, its the ideal network for redirecting traffic and improving your SEO!.

    And at last, Instagram and Snapchat are also quite an important part of my life right now, I use them everyday for posting my day to day stuff, the ephimerality of both networks is a very strong ally for posting those things you wouldnt like to see in Facebook "look to the past" feature, am I right?

    My less favorite network? Google +, although I understand it has some interesting features, I really dont get it, I tried to use it but its like it just doesnt work for me, you can really tell that it was something designed by Google just with the objective of having their own network, but they really didnt put much effort on it, it doesnt have any distinctive feature, and I believe its not very responsive.

    The social media universe is so profound and full of surprises, after writing this comment, I cant avoid to ask my self what the next surprise will be? will it be a new network that will break the internet? or a new feature in one of the existing networks that will surprise us all? lets wait and see, im really anxious to find out.

      I was also an early user of Facebook, but to be honest I dislike a lot of the changes they've made. Other than the first couple of changes to streamline the system and create live chat, I think most of the changes have made it actually more difficult to use on a personal level, and now they've also made it all but impossible for brands to really catch people's attention without paying for ads.

    I like Twitter because it's fun and super easy to use, but I don't know if it's the best marketing tool.

    I read somewhere that only about 2-5% of your followers read your tweets.

      Ouch! I think the percentage is a little higher than that, but to be honest it doesn't feel too wrong to me. I do love Twitter, but my engagement stats definitely aren't what I'd like them to be, and I understand this is pretty common.

      Sometimes I find myself wishing I could fit two sentences, but I generally love Twitter for this exact same reason.
