    You know top socail networks are Facebook, Twitter. But I also see people growing their business on a platform like Pinterest, Instagram but personally I've never thought of using Pinterest or Instagram.
    It depends upon your tactics how you are going to target the people on any social media. I am best on targetting facebook and twitter traffic, never tried any other and don't want to.

    Facebook and Twitter are great because EVERYONE is on them but you should also consider:
    LinkedIn - it is for professionals which means people are there for professional reasons and not just for fun
    Google+ - since it is owned by Google it can help you out with ranking your page higher
    Pinterest - the 3rd biggest search engine in the world right now, some people say it is the future!
    Other are great as well but I personally focus on these 5 the most...

    I love facebook, but there are plenty of other social platforms out there!!

    It really depends upon what you want to achieve, whether it be brand recognition or traffic generation. Some platforms are better for making sales form (youtube for example), and some are great for getting the word out about you product or service (twitter).

    You need to define your goals and then look at the pro's and Cons of each platform and choose accordingly

    There are thousands of social networking places on the net but the top one is face book. Now the question arises as to how to use them. If the potential clients are found through selected niches then it becomes easier to target them. SO first search for the the visitors and then you can convince them.

    Facebook is quiet helpful to spread your online presence with building Facebook fan page. Twitter can also help you to post tweets, which can also give your online business a new edge. Followed by bookmarking sites like StumbleUpon, image pinning site - Pinterest and post in Google+ can serve you to attract traffic, gain higher popularity as well as rank higher in Google SERP rankings.

        Possibly. Some would argue that however many folks use LinkedIn more from the HR angle than anything else. In terms of Marketing your products or services, it could be argued that others are more effective.

        Above all, Adwords is still king but I think experimenting with social in all forms is a good thing.

        If we say that numbers do not lie, then we would say Facebook is the best. However, with facebook, most of the people there are just surfing and you need to know how to entice them to buy what you are promoting, and there is a learning curve. But sure it is the hugest network there is, with lots of income opportunities for us marketers.

        However, Pinterest is good when it comes to buying. The traffic on Pinterest is a buying traffic and they tend to buy what ever interests them. They are mostly women and so you need to have offers that suits them. Plus, it is easy to implement and start making money. Even a newbie can do it without the need for intensive training.

        Then there is the mostly free traffic from Youtube, which is also buying traffic.

        In conclusion, I would rank them in this order (based on return on investment of money and time)
        1.Youtube
        2.Pinterest
        3.Facebook

    Pinterest is great lately for having an attention on the market. Google+ is great for SEO (obviously), Facebook and Twitter are evergreen... LinkedIn and Instagram are, for me, still unknown, so I can't tell much about it.
    I have a combo of Facebook and Pinterest (still learning and figuring out details)... and plan to spread to Google+ because of SEO benefits.

    Hope that helps adding a value to the thread somehow

    I think it will be depending on your niche. I have been doing SMM for quite some time, and I don't take personal favorites with social media networks since I find them all useful and unique in their own ways. However, if you want traffic, sales, and popularity in one package-Facebook covers plenty of niche. For social media beginners, I would recommend starting with Facebook in their campaigns.

    Following others will help you get more followers. You will also have to follow the right people or brands. Three types of people you should be following are Potential Clients, People who will spread your message and your rivals.

    For me it's Google+, Facebook, Twitter but it depends how you use them and what you prefer...

    Facebook is where people tend to talk to real friends (that they know in real life).

    Twitter it is more about strangers that have similar interests and quick back-and-forth conversations (although Twitter is largely unorganised and you are limited by the nature of only being able to post a limited number of characters).

    Google+ has the features of Facebook (photos, posts etc) but is for strangers with similar interests like Twitter. It is also very organised with communities that you can join.

    In terms of marketing, I think Twitter is the best. It allows you to make in-time interactions with your followers and reach out to your potential market easily. My suggestion is that don't overdo it, use a few that you think are the most appropriate to you business, otherwise it would hard to manage, and complicated for your followers too.

If you need a video hosting company go with one that won't ban you so readily. Not that you should cut Youtube out of the mix, but don't give them utter dependence to the point of excluding other forms of social media.

    When is Facebook most effective? When are you better off using Twitter, or LinkedIn? And what exactly is Google+ good for, anyway?

For example Pinterest is mostly women... so if you are selling a tire iron set or whatever guys buy, it may not work even if your picture is stunning HD. Think of your audience and what they want and where they want to find you. This research can save you a lot of time and perhaps money.

    I think it is odd that you would say FB is on its way out. Twitter has like 300 million users (most of which are duplicate accounts) and FB has 1 billion users (with a B). Facebook is not going anywhere any time soon. Numbers do not lie. Everyone is on Facebook. I suggest using as many social media options as you can, but do not believe that 1 billion people are going to walk away and kill Facebook.

  • There is no best social media platform for marketing and promotion. You need to run your own campaign and see which platform works well for you and for your niche. I have been marketing my websites on different social media sites and each site receives different conversions. I suggest you try to market and run your campaign on different social platforms to check which campaign works well for your site/niche.

    Seriously, there is no such thing as the best social media. It depends on the user's preference.

    The best social media platform to make online presence is Facebook. it helps to reach your customers far and wide and you will be in touch and build strong customer relationship, no matter where your customers live. it will also generate traffic and create brand awareness among your audience.

    Hi jason here,

    I will go with FB paid aids. It is the most common and popular social media platform and if we use its paid ads we can target our exact customers. FB paid ads have a lot of depth for targeting various catagories of customers.

    It is hard to increase presence in free activities, you need intersting and funny contents for that.

    Facebook to publish blog posts. (1st focus)
    Twitter -> Less active users in Europe
    Instagram for brand awarness. (Link in the bio to drive trafic to your website)
    Pinterest -> You'll not get a lot of trafic with this social network.
    Google + (I don't know if people get a ton of trafic through this social media)

    Every social networking site is important. This one can be effective for you and that one can be perfect for other users. So you can not justify.
    But I think one social network is leading the world. That is Facebook. The massive and most powerful. So I think Facebook is the best social media.

    Define your customer > define which platforms they'd spend most of their time on > that's your best social media.

    For instance... if you're selling eBooks on baking cookies, pinterest would be your best bet as it's easy to share recipes and photos.

    Depends on your goals. If you want to build a "brand" Twitter might be good, if you want to connect and make "friends", Facebook is better. if you´re in the "corporate world" LinkedIn might be the best place.

    Facebook and Twitter both are great social media platforms to make an online presence. With these tools, you can also use Google+, Pinterest, Reddit, Tumblr, and Stumbleupon.
    Thanks!!

    It really depends on your goal. Twitter is amazing I would say it's a great design and very simple but effective. Instagram I feel just has way too much going on but I do have a project coming out to really tone down bullying in a major way but that's besides the point. If your looking to do long post at one time I wouldn't say twitter because you can only type so many words in each tweet. But short and to the point can always help as well.

    This depends upon who your target audience is . For example you might gain traction on face book but on the flip-side get very little interaction promoting the same services on twitter. I find that I gain most of my traction on twitter.
