Social Media Platforms and What They Can do For You

You can’t deny just how huge social media has become. The biggest and best social platforms are being used by individuals and businesses alike for all kinds of reasons. They can help to increase exposure, spread a brand message, promote products, and more. Here’s a rundown of some of the best platforms and what they can do for you.


Instagram is a great platform for individuals or businesses such as clothing companies. However, many other types of businesses use this photo sharing platform too. Makeup companies, salons, photographers, artists, and more all use Instagram to increase their exposure. The more follows and likes you get, the more popular you become. Some users, such as fashion bloggers, can get hundreds of thousands of followers.

You probably already know Facebook; it’s used by billions of people all over the world. If you’re using it as an individual, it’s great for keeping in touch with friends and family. However, businesses can find it useful too. You can advertise on there to a targeted audience, build a business page, and offer great customer service.


Twitter is similar to Facebook, except it’s a little better for following (stalking) celebrities. You might even get a reply from one of them if you’re lucky! It’s a quick and easy way to let people know what you’re doing. You’ll often find businesses big and small with a Twitter account, as they use it to share useful content and help with any queries.


Keek is used to share short videos of all kinds. You can find funny videos, helpful videos, and more. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a short clip director or just like to make funny clips, this is the social media platform for you. If people like your videos, they’ll get shared and your exposure will increase.


Youtube is similar to Keek, except the videos can be a fair bit longer. You can also find celebrity music videos, TV programs, and films on here. Great for posting adverts, parody videos, or funny business videos.

Pinterest is a photo sharing and saving app perfect for gaining inspiration. You can create mood boards and add as many images as you like to them. You can find home decor inspiration, outfit inspiration, and so much more. A simple way to keep all of your favourite photos in one place.


Tumblr allows you to find and follow things that you love. You can share links, photos, text, and so much more. Everything is customisable so you can make it exactly how you want it.


If you fancy yourself as a bit of a fashion guru, Lookbook is a great app to share your outfit photos. There are rules though, so it isn’t like Pinterest or Instagram. Your photos can only be posted once, and you should be able to see the majority of your outfit. It should also be a high quality photograph. It’s like a fashion magazine curated by its users.

Some of these social platforms are bound to help you in one way or another. Enjoy!
