I’m convinced Twitter is the best social network for business. Many companies tell me about their unproductive Facebook page. Often, the story is that they have some “likes” but it hasn’t done anything for their business. That is all too common. Customers don’t want tons of company updates in their personal stream and they aren’t likely to engage with you on Facebook. That isn’t true on Twitter.

Twitter is great for networking and audience building. It's easy to reach people through DMs. But it all depends on your type of business. Some business owners find Facebook or other social networking sites to be more effective than Twitter. What really should be done, as a business owner, is to try out all social media platforms and then maximize on the platform that's giving you the best engagement. Just my 2 cents. :) Great article, by the way.

Hi Kim,

I certainly respect your opinion here. My personal point of view is that different social media are appropriate to different situations...and different kinds of business. Twitter is remarkably effective and unparalleled as a networking platform. Thanks for sharing your analysis with the BizSugar community.
