  • Interesting thread, there are a lot of discussions going on regarding which are the biggest networks out there, and there are some pretty good reasons for that, knowing the potential audiences you can get in each network is esential for determining if a social media strategy for some channel will be worth the effort and money.

    Facebook is surely the big winner here, everyone uses it, in my country, Facebook penetration is almost at the 80% (Argentina has 40 million inhabitants, and 35 million of them are on facebook, its one of the highest percentages in the world), so, at least in my country, if you are not on Facebook, is like you wouldnt even exists.

    Twitter has a very smaller audience, but its power resides some place else, twitter is all about the agenda, if some topic gets to trending topic one day, that topic will get to the news, and it will be discussed by everyone, this is also why is so important to be on twitter, because it can let you control and keep an eye on what people is saying about you.

    Instagram also has a very large audience in my country, I dont have the exact numbers, but I think they might be close to the Facebook numbers, and with the Instagram stories break through, those number might start to go even higher.

    Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube etc., have gained huge popularity in a short span. We can call it 'Instant Hit' for these sites have been a great hit from the moment they were introduced to public. They serve as a platform to share one's views and their experiences.

    Sites like Linkedin have the largest professional network which attracts number of professionals to get connected with others across the world.

    However apart from these there are also other social media sites like quora, reddit etc., to publish your ideas, discuss them with people of similar interests and also know a lot of information.

    This is a really great list to refer and thanks for posting it.
