I currently use Twitter and Facebook the most for marketing but was wondering if there was a better, more effective site out there to use.

If you're a sole trader or otherwise very high up in a company, LinkedIn is amazing for building business connections.

I find Facebook to definitely be the best for my own business. As I mentioned in another thread somewhere, its advertising capabilities are phenomenal and I find the interface brilliant.

I hadn't thought of LinkedIn, oddly enough. I'll have to give it a try and see if it boosts my business a bit more.

Really depends on your target market instagram is good for young adults and facebook for older people.
For in person I'm not sure if it counts as a social media but I highly recommend this high tech business card company I found I bought one of the metal cards and have used it out and about a few times and it impressed ppl. the site is kamicards.co

When it comes to social media platforms, the best choice depends on your target market.

For young adults, Instagram is a popular choice. It's a visual platform that's great for sharing photos and videos, and it has a large user base of millennials and Gen Z.

On the other hand, Facebook is a better option for reaching an older demographic. Many people over the age of 30 use Facebook, and it's a great platform for sharing longer-form content, such as articles and blog posts.

LinkedIn is a top choice for professional networking, enabling connections with industry peers and job opportunities. Twitter allows engagement in industry discussions and networking through hashtags and chats. Facebook Groups facilitate connections with like-minded professionals and offer industry-specific discussions. Meetup provides opportunities for in-person networking at local events focused on shared interests. Slack and Reddit are also valuable platforms for industry-specific networking and discussions within dedicated communities
