Social Media Platform is identified based on the type of Products/Services offered and the age of the potential users.

Depending upon what kind of Business you are into, your past experience, and Market Data, we can easily identify that which Platform you should use.

For Example:-

If you are running an HR Consultancy for Mid level Employees then you know that you are most likely to find your potential customers on LinkedIn and Twitter with age range of 30-40. The target set of people are mature enough and experienced in the field, and are able to understand well what they are going to deal with.Right?

On the other hand

If you want to sell funky t-shirts and shoes then your targeted audience in India should be the people between the age of 16-30 and majority of these people are actively available on Facebook and Instagram.


So the platform you should use primarily to promote and market your Products/Services varies from Business to Business and brand to brand.
