Still Reigns Supreme
Facebook is the founding father of social media (sorry, MySpace). Its longevity doesn’t seem to be affected by recent scandals with privacy laws either. With a reported 2 billion monthly active users, Mark Zuckerberg’s social media network remains the largest with 69% of Americans holding an account.
Facebook is often chided as a colorful patchwork of cat photos, political memes and community news, but it remains a legitimate virtual place where people engage with businesses. According to Edison Research, 63% of U.S. adults over the age of 12 use Facebook. Facebook attracts users from all ages — with 25% of its advertising audience in the 18-24 age range, according to Hootsuite. More older Americans over 55 have been using the platform since 2012, according to Pew Research.
Recent data from Facebook revealed that 3 million advertisers are active on their platform, 70% of which are from outside the U.S.
How to use Facebook groups
Instagram targest the largest age group
Instagram is easily one of the most powerful social media platforms for businesses to brand themselves and to engage with potential customers. eMarketer predicts that Instagram will reach 1.1 billion users in 2022.
This photo-only social application is especially important because it targets the largest age group, 25-34. It’s considered the second-largest network after Facebook, according to Sprout Social.

More than half of its audience (60%) are made up of women. The number of users shopping on Pinterest grew by 50% in the first half of 2020, according to Sprout Social.
Pinterest pins are “immortal,” lasting for weeks and even months after its orginally posted. The pins are 100 times more spreadable than a tweet and 1,600 times longer than the lifespan of a Facebook post.
Twitter Helps Position Expert Status
More customers flock to Twitter to communicate directly their customer service concerns, questions about products or services and even praise for a job well done. However, the strategy for Twitter marketing is not the same as pinning on Pinterest or posting on Facebook. The more than 319 million monthly active Twitter users. The average U.S. adult posts twice and favorites one tweet per month, follows 89 accounts, and has 29 followers, according to Pew.
LinkedIn Dominates the B2B Market
LinkedIn is the largest business to business social media network out there, with more than 774 million users. This social media site is all about building relationships and networks through word-of-mouth marketing. LinkedIn marketing can help you position your company as a thought leader and attract people to engage with your company in a professional manner. Completed LinkedIn company pages typically receive twice as many visitors than those with incomplete pages. And organizations that post at least monthly generally gain followers six times faster than those who don’t.
