    In our technology obsessed world today, businesses can’t ignore the importance of social media. The infographic in this article is a great way to decide which platform is best for your business. Businesses don’t need to be on every platform! Choose one or two and perfect it because if you try to be everywhere, chances are you’re going to end up neglecting some accounts. Who you want to target and what you’re marketing are key components. My personal favorite is Instagram and I think it’s because I’m a millennial. It’s definitely a social media platform that should be mastered! It can sometimes be underrated by businesses. The raw SEO value of Instagram is limited, but it can still be very beneficial! Instagram lets people tag locations. If a business is food or clothing related, Instagram is crucial because when customers are in the store they’ll be able to post a picture of the product and tag the location. Their followers will see their post and it’s like free advertising!
