Social networks provide an easy way to stay in touch with friends and relatives, meet new people, share pictures and videos, and promote your brand. Social networking is such a popular phenomena, it seems every new app and service includes a social element to it.
While there’s a bunch of startups that want to garner the same popularity of Facebook, Google+, and Twitter, it’s hard to compete with the established giants. Of course there’s also social networks that are aimed for specific areas of communication. For example LinkedIn is for networking professionals, Instagram for sharing photos, and Path for staying in touch with your closes friends.
You also need to choose the best social service based on its capabilities. If you just want to shoot out a quick message or link, Twitter is a perfect choice. Or, if you want to get more in depth about a topic, Google+ or Facebook might be a better fit. Maybe you want to go with Path for a network that’s more private, more manageable, and mobile. Of course with most of these services you can share videos too.
