Social Media

There are a lot of social media platforms out there but only 6 that we feel are relevant for most businesses and they are:

  1. Facebook
  2. Twitter
  3. Instagram
  4. LinkedIn
  5. YouTube
  6. Pinterest

Google+ used to be on the list but has decided to back out (as of April 2nd, 2019). Google+ shut down for consumers in March of 2019 (four months earlier than expected). The company cited software design flaws potentially allowing outside developers access to personal information of millions of users.



We offer services to setup your business social media and also to update it if you don't have time. The key to social media is updating it frequently. Take a look below at the recommended social media platforms to see which ones you want for your business. We are here to help, give us a call today to discuss your needs.
