    Facebook with lots of advertising. Instagram and Twitter are very good at building organically. It just takes more time.

    Decide the type of audience you are targeting and accordingly go for the social channel. Are you using any video marketing of your blog posts and articles??

    I think the social media you'd focus on would depend on your targeted audience. For example, for a food blog, Pinterest is amazing.

    But, there's loads of sites that have strong followings across multiple major social platforms. So it probably has more to do with social media strategy for a given platform... than finding the 'right platform for growth.'

  • Haha, it sounds like you could teach a few of us about building up social networks yourself. Those are great numbers.

    Facebook tends to be vary popular, particularly with Facebook groups.

    Instagram is rising in popularity with internet marketers right at this moment and there have been quite a few courses released recently about using it wisely.

    Pinterest is also known to be the social platform with a lot of "buyer" traffic.

    Have a blissful day.

    Warmly,

  • Actually, it depends on your market. I've had good results using Twitter and FB on one niche. While for another niche, I focus mainly on G+ or LinkedIn. And for another one, I primarily use Instagram. It's best if you know your market first. Once you know where your market it, you'll know what the best platform to reach them.

    The most popular social channels are Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn & Google +.
    But which one is best for you, it depends on your target audience.

    For bloggers LinkedIn is also a nice place to grow audience. Connect your blogs with LinkedIn profile and participate on LinkedIn groups.
