    Every SMO site is having their own features, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, linkedin, Instagram, according to your business category it works. One thing we can say that Facebook is for multiple business not like other websites suppose If you consider Instagram it works well with photography, designing, Interiors, fashion and diya categories. Linked in is for education, career, jobs and technology related categories. So choose according to your business.

    Facebook has worked the best for me by customers spreading my name on various groups - I've had more than several new customers contact me and come to my shop telling me so-and-so referred them to me.

    Actually, in many cases it can be more effective because there is less competition.

    I think you ask this question to give you some ideas on what social networks to concentrate on. I suggest you pick a couple of them to focus on and see if you're getting a lot more traffic with the networks in question. In other words, you'll have to test and see what networks are worth your time and which ones aren't.
    I agree. I'm seeing a lot of success with linkedin and twitter. Do not take these platforms for granted.

    I agree with Dewald, you have to have a presence these days. If you approach a company and you don't have any social media presence it could reflect poorly on your business. Our model is cold calling, cultivating our own leads but we have people constantly checking us out on Linkedin, Facebook.

    I think a lot of it depends on your niche.

    For most small businesses - Facebook, Twitter and Google+ will cover a large majority of your audience, but if you are clothing or fashion based, Instagram would be a fantastic platform, because you have very visually attractive merchandise to share on a very visual platform.

    I have had success in each of the platforms, it was just finding which one best suited my clients and was the easiest to reach their prospective audience.

    I'm B2B and by far the best social channels have been LinkedIn and Twitter. If I produce something that's a little more consuming-facing, then Facebook can be good, but it's not consistent.

    first i will like to know what you mean by b2b and b2c? secondly, though Facebook and YouTube are my favorites among others like twitter, Google+, Facebook is the surest for me because of its simplicity and its high volume of traffic visitors that have way, converted into sales for me unlike twitter and YouTube. i go with Facebook anytime, any day.

    I agree with the people here, it really depends on who you're targeting. For the brand I am marketing, we mostly use Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and we've built great relationships with our current customers and prospects as well on those sites. In the future though, we'll be experimenting with other social media platforms like Pinterest and the like.

    I'm not sure if this is O/T, but yesterday I was called by a firm called Constant Contact. They gave a slick presentation offering to manage all the social network outlets for our business. For example, if we were to upload our menu through their interface they would ensure our latest menu as well as other current information is posted to Yelp, Foursquare, TripAdvisor, Google+, Facebook, etc.

    I guess they're selling ease of access to these various sites, saving the business owner time and effort in maintaining their social network presence. I'm sure they also take some money out of the backend by charging those companies for maintaining the accuracy of the data they present. They're on-time-good-deal-special-for-me-only price was $79 a month with no contract. I told them I needed to talk it over with my partner.

    Has anyone else used this kind of service? If so, what did you think of it?
