Popular Social Networks

Social networking is one of the most important marketing tool for bloggers which shouldn’t be overlooked. But at the same time social media is a time sucker! When you get the hang of Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or even Google+, you may end up spending time more on those platforms and start blogging less.

So Which Social Media Networks do we have?

Before we go into social media time management, Lets take a look at the top Social media networks available.

This means that you can even share more than a post title and URL, which many of us find very helpful and efficient.

From that point forward, we’ve seen the development of Pinterest, which has doubtlessly taken the online networking world by storm. According to searchenginejournal, Pinterest drives more activity than LinkedIn and Google+ joined together (am not so sure about that now). Google+, a solid opponent for Facebook, is additionally making progress. Those concerned with SEO and Google rankings are most likely urged to join, as profiles and status updates are starting to show up SERP.

Coming along is StumbleUpon which have additionally turned into an extraordinary media instrument for those that need more exposure to what they have to offer like DIY tutorials, and other evergreen write ups. LinkedIn has turned into a system intended more for professionals & experts, yet numerous bloggers are discovering the platform very useful as per marketing also. Having a profile is like an online resume, with the ability to add people to your list and build connections as well as the ability to put recommendations and accept recommendations from other people make the platform fantastic.

Now back to the reason for this post.
