Hello! I'm new to this forum, so I'm looking for ideas which platform is more useful for your business - Instagram or Facebook? Where the paid ads and posts are doing better and get more engagement?
I know it depends on your business, so please give examples of what kind of business you have and which platform is more useful and profitable.

    Instagram is where you want to focus all your attention, Facebook is turning into the New Myspace(Desert). YouTube is also a major factor.

    I really think it depends on the niche and target market. For me, most of the stuff I'm working on is doing better with Facebook. But you should always try as many different options as possible.

    The both social media platforms is owned by one company. The main thing about it is just the fact that you select the one that best suits you business.

    If you have spare time, you can use both at the same time.

    Why not both? There's no singularly most effective platform, as each has its own strengths/weaknesses. Why don't you sign up for both platforms, and launch sponsored posts for each and get back to us the results (i.e. which has more interactions, etc)?

    Instagram is the best for doing business because there are more engagements on Insta as compared to FB.

    Both Instagram and Facebook are great platforms for promoting your business. Instagram can be a perfect place for posting images of your product and then giving a related caption to it. Short and simple.
    But Facebook has many other features alongwoth posting images you can directly engage with communities of your niche or post ads to redirect traffic.

    Instagram and Facebook have their own advantages and disadvantages. I saw many brands doing ingtagram promotion from brandfollowers, and big brands and Internet celebrities did a good job in marketing promotion.
    From bigspy's point of view, facebook may be better for small and medium-sized enterprises, with a bigger platform and more diverse ways of advertising

  • Both Facebook and Instagram are absolutely necessary for promoting your business. Facebook is ideal for regularly updating your blog posts and the other engagement related posts. On Facebook, you can create groups, connect with people with similar interests, and engage in meaningful conversations. You can also boost your posts to reach out to a larger audience. On the other hand, Instagram is useful in posting promotional images, updates and infographics. You can also use the Instagram stories feature to engage your followers.

    Instagram with its short messages can help with brand recall while Facebook is where you can close the deal

  • Instagram is more useful for your business Because Instagram has more than 800 million active users on a monthly basis and around 500 million daily active users. 80% of all these users are outside the U.S. If you want to grow your business rapidly, you can Buy Instagram Followers from Alwaysviral. I Purchased 2k Instagram Followers from them and got pretty good appreciation.
