Weekly Poll: Most Effective Type of Social Media


Jun 10, 2014 Weekly Poll 2 Comments

By: Linda Fulkerson

People love social media!

A few years ago, I wrote a post about the various types of social media sites. It is by far the most popular blog post I’ve ever written for any blog – and even though it’s a few years old, I still get a lot of traffic to that post. My list had 23 types (not individual platforms), but I’m sure that other kinds have popped up since then.

Social Media marketing can be very effective, but it can also be a waste of time. Which is it for you? What platform helps you the most as far as bringing traffic to your website, generating leads, getting new customers, etc.? That is the question of this week’s poll.

Use the comment area to add your thoughts about the use of social media – banes and benefits. And if you choose other, please state which platform in the comments area.


What is your most effective type of social media?

    I always figured the one that will work best is the one you spend the most time on. I have a blast on Facebook, and concentrate my efforts there. The others are okay, but I do best on Facebook.

      Thanks, Linda! I do well on Facebook, too. I’ve also had good success with YouTube on past blogs, but I’m just getting started with my YouTube channel here. I was surprised last week when I checked my Google Analytics that Instagram was the second highest social media referrer (behind Facebook) to this website. So, I’ve been trying to be a little more active there.
