Open Thread: What is Your Favorite Social Media Platform?

There are several popular social media platforms that most freelancers use on a regular basis: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn…

There are also dozens of lesser-known social media platforms. Many of them are specific to a particular need or industry. Some may be just getting started.

In this open thread we want to ask a simple question: What is Your Favorite Social Media Platform?

Think about where you spend most of your time when you do your online networking. Also, think about which website has helped you the most. Is it one of the well-known sites, or is it a smaller venue? Sharing your preferences will help other freelancers who are just getting started with networking. You might even make some additional valuable connections.

  • Which social network is your favorite?
  • Why is it your favorite, what do you like/dislike about it?
  • Have you brought in new clients from any social networks?
  • Do you have any tips for other freelancers?

Share your answers in the comments. If you like, you can also share a link to your preferred profile so that other freelancers can connect with you.
