Social Media Platforms

image

From Facebook to Tumblr – Social media is always improving making it easier for us to connect with our friends and family.

This is going to be a very basic rundown of my interpretation of these platforms.

**Please note reviews and ratings of Google+ , Periscope and Pintrest will be attached ASAP ✌

This will help you decide – what’s for me?

Your right.

There probably is no need to have every platform for personal use. Make the choice that’s best for you!

Let’s start with an easy one..

Facebook

We all know this one. You have probably seen The Social Network, and are no stranger to Mark Zuckerberg. It is easy to navigate, connect and understand. Facebook has an efficient app that is (in my opinion) easier to use than the website.

Instagram

Absolutely fabulous for photos & hash tagging. Practically any photo/video you take – you can make it beautiful. Everyone’s a photographer and everyone’s a model on Instagram. The app is easy to use and convenient. Love it or hate it, it can be a unique business tool. I encourage showcasing the personal side of operators of the business, staff, and satisfied customers. #Hastagging is a must, #Filters are optional.

Twitter

I like Twitter. I definitely don’t love it. Personally I find the limit of characters frustrating, especially when you have to factor in your hashtags as well. The app is convenient and to the point. It is a fantastic tool when you want to connect to your local market and is easy to connect to your other platforms.

LinkedIn

I have to admit that I’m still getting used to this one. I do like it, I love the concept, and am always open to connecting with potential clients. You can put your entire resume on this platform and be easily found by employers. I find the app to be confusing, but it is aesthetically pleasing and easy to import your contacts. LinkedIn is perfect for building business connections.

Tumblr

I am a fan of this platform. It’s super easy to use and create your own website or blog. Video and image upload are easy and it’s a great tool to combine business and personal interests. The App is super easy to use and its a great start-up website or blog. You can also post to multiple platforms at the same time through Tumblr which is convenient and thorough!
