Countless businesses use their Facebook pages not only to share interesting items about their brands, but also what is going on generally in their respective industries. Facebook can/should also be utilized in offering prospective buyers deals, deals that they will have trouble finding elsewhere. You can also run polls on Facebook to get a feel for the pulse of your industry. With more than a billion members around the globe, Facebook still remains far and away the top social site for business and personal means;
- Instagram – They say sometimes that a picture tells a thousand words. When it comes to Instagram, you could definitely make that case for this fast-growing social venue. As great as your company’s story may be when you tell it in words, images sometimes tell a story all on their own. Not too long ago, Instagram surpassed Twitter as the second-ranking social media venue for users. Not surprisingly, many more businesses have gotten wind of this, turning to the site to post pictures that will clearly describe their brands.

- Pinterest – Much like Instagram, Pinterest is a go-to site when you want to appeal to other companies from a visual standpoint.
