Facebook is the largest social networking site around the world, with more than two billion people using it every month.
 Almost a third of the world's population! There are more than 65 million companies using Facebook Pages and more than six million advertisers promoting their activity on Facebook, making it a safe bet if you want to be on social media.

It's easy to get started on Facebook because almost every content format works great for Facebook - texts, images, videos, live videos, and stories.
 But note that Facebook's algorithm prioritizes content that sparks meaningful conversations and interactions between people, especially those from family and friends.
 If you want to know more about success with Facebook's algorithm update, Brian Peters, our Strategic Partnership marketer, has shared the secrets of the new algorithm and what you can do to thrive on Facebook.

Also, remember to optimize your content for mobile as 94 percent of Facebook users access Facebook via the mobile app.

YouTube is a video sharing platform where users watch 1 billion hours of videos every day.
 To start, you can create a YouTube channel for your brand where you can upload videos for subscribers to view, like, comment and share.

Besides being the second-largest social media site, YouTube (owned by Google) is also often known as the second largest search engine after Google. (So ​​if you want your brand to be on "YouTube," I recommend reading it on YouTube SEO.)

Finally, you can also advertise on YouTube to increase your reach on the platform.

3. - 1.5 billion MAUs

WhatsApp is a messaging app used by people in more than 180 countries.
 Initially, WhatsApp was only used by people to communicate with their family and friends. 
Gradually, people started communicating with companies via WhatsApp. (When I was in Bangkok to purchase a new suit, I reached out to Al Khayyat via WhatsApp .)

WhatsApp is building its business platform to allow companies to have a suitable business profile, provide customer support, and share updates with customers about their purchases.
 For small businesses, it built a WhatsApp Business app while for medium and large businesses there is a WhatsApp Business AP I. Here are some stories of how companies use WhatsApp.

4. - 1.3 billion MAUs

Messenger used to be a messaging feature within Facebook, and since 2011 Facebook has made Messenger a separate app on its own and has expanded a lot in its features.

If you are thinking of using Messenger for your business, here are seven ways you can use Messenger to market you.

WeChat has grown from a messaging app, just like WhatsApp and Messenger, to an all-in-one platform.

 (It is used in 80 countries and is also available in many other languages.) In addition to instant messaging features, it also enables users to decorate their avatars, watch movies, play online games, shop online, blog, and pay.

I have to admit that I don't know much about QQ but Carrie Law from ClickZ has written a helpful brief introduction to QQ for marketers.

Qzone is another social media platform based in China, where users can upload multimedia, write blogs, play games, and decorate their virtual spaces.

According to several people on Quora, Qzone appears to be more popular among teens (while WeChat is more popular among adults).

10. Tik - 500 million MAUs

Tik Tok (also known as Douyin in China) is a rising music video social network.
 It was the world's most downloaded app in the first quarter of 2018, beating Facebook, Instagram, and other social media apps.

My initial impression is that it's similar to Instagram for short music videos (although I'm sure it's more of that).
 Users can record and edit videos of up to 60 seconds, add music and special effects.

While it is most popular in Asia, my hunch is that its popularity may spread to the West.

Twitter is a social networking site for news, entertainment, sports, politics, and more.
 What makes Twitter different from most other social media sites is that it focuses heavily on real-time information - things that are happening right now.
 For example, one of the defining moments in Twitter history was when Janice Crums tweeted a picture of a plane landing in the Hudson River while he was on the ferry to transport passengers.

Another unique feature of Twitter is that it only allows 280 characters in a tweet (140 for Japanese, Korean, and Chinese), unlike most social media sites that have a much higher limit.

Twitter is also often used as a channel for customer service. According to advertisers on Twitter, more than 80 percent of social customer service requests occur on Twitter.
 Salesforce is called Twitter "The New 1-800 Number for Customer Service". There are several customer service tools on social media, such as Buffer Reply, now available to help you manage social customer service conversations.

Reddit, also known as the front page of the internet, is a platform where users can send, discuss, and vote questions, links, and images, up or down.

There are subreddits (i.e. dedicated forums) for just about anything under the sun (and above). However, subcategories have different levels of engagement, so it's great to research to see if there are common affiliate links your brand could be a part of.
 For example, r / social media tends to be very quiet so we rarely use Reddit.

Besides submitting your content to Reddit and participating in discussions, you can also find content ideas and advertise on Reddit.

14. Baidu Tieba.com00 million MAUs

Baidu Tieba is a Chinese online forum created by Baidu, the largest Chinese search engine in the world.
