Instagram

Pros: Instagram is for sure simple to use and was the fastest growing network 2014. It Appeals to wide audience – Links don’t work in captions – Limited integrations

Cons: A pain in the ass, links don’t work in captions and it is not friendly to developers, it has limited integrations capabilities

LinkedIn

Pros: LinkedIn allows networking opportunities directly with the members and prompt direct business relationship, enables sharing of knowledge and expertise

Cons: on the other side of the coin the B2B focus limits the audience. Ads can poorly be targeted which leads to a potential overload of irrelevant content

Facebook

ProsFacebook is really easy to use, set up and control from a variety of devices, Facebook allows you to communicate publicly and privately, in real time

Cons: Facebook still faces privacy issues, marketing campaigns can be time-consuming, and the negative thoughts by their users it has become ad-focused

Google+

ProsGoogle+ is the only social network which has a profile with SEO benefits (ie, will help your site’s visibility in search engines. It can easy to use and integrates with Gmail and Google Docs

Cons: Google+ is very similar to facebook, but a strong rule it does not allow promotions and contests, they are strictly forbidden. Still, Google fights for market share and has  limited audience size

Twitter

ProsTwitter is easy to setup and use, the 140 characters limit keeps messages to the point and it is easy to search network for content using hashtags

Cons: Quickly the volume of messages can lead to overload and for sure we can say it is not a platform for visual content
