Over 97% of marketers use social media to increase audience engagement. But how do you choose the right platform for your business?

Here are 3 types of social media and (some of) their pros and cons:

Social networking (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn)


  • Most prominently used social media
  • Offer text, photo, and video posts


  • Link/text-only posts will get less engagement
  • Facebook gives individuals’ posts (vs. business posts) priority

Video sharing (YouTube, Vimeo)


  • Offer website linking capabilities
  • Offer analytics and SEO features


  • More time-consuming (and expensive) content creation
  • Require backend tasks like SEO

Blogging/community (Tumblr, Reddit)


  • Offer text, photo, and video posts
  • Offer website linking capabilities


  • More time-consuming content creation
  • Easier for your posts to go unseen
