Social media can be tricky and with new platforms popping up all of the time, it can get a little overwhelming. It’s important to remember how to use each platform to reach your target audience. Some content is better suited for one particular platform while other content can be spread across multiple platforms. Each platform treats and emphasizes content differently. So, here’s my take on how to use each of these social media platforms to reach a target audience. In my example I’ve used fellow pizza lovers as my audience.
