Social media is a general term for websites and applications focused on communication, community participation, interaction, content sharing, and collaboration. Every individual has found comfort in social media. Generally, social media can be seen as a tool to reach and communicate with a targeted audience. Many people use social media to keep in touch and connect with friends and family, while others use social media to connect with other communities. Many companies and businesses use social media to market and promote their products.

Social media was made possible by individual companies. This article is majorly about social media network companies. There are several social media network companies you can invest in to gain more audience.

Top Social Media Platforms to Grow your Business 


Facebook can be said to be the largest social network in the world and one of the most widely used. Facebook was recorded to be the first company to surpass 1 billion user accounts. This means with Facebook you have the potential of reaching audiences from every part of the world. Besides being able to connect with friends and family, you can access various Facebook online applications and use paid Facebook ads to market and promote your business, brands, and products.


Instagram was launched as a unique social network based solely on photos and video sharing. So this social media photo-sharing app allows you to capture the best moments of your life with your phone camera or any other camera and turn them into a work of art. If you are a business owner, you can take pictures of your products and share them with people all around the world. You might not know where your potential customers are, but this app can connect you to them.


On this social network, you can send short text messages (called tweets) with a limited number of texts (up to 280) to deliver your messages around the world. As the online shopping experience grows, you can also use Twitter to promote your business and services by tweeting and using a strong hashtag.

WT Social 

WT Social was founded by Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wells. WT stands for WikiTribune and is a new social network that is positioning itself as a viable alternative to important trading platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. WT Social is an ad-free social network funded by user donations. WT Social is designed to help members make their own content decisions and promote and build an honest community of content and community.


If you are a musician or a singer, then this media network is the best way of reaching a targeted audience. SoundCloud proves that you don't need a recording contract to build a fan base. The music sharing platform was launched in 2008 and has gradually grown into one of the most popular places to find new talent. Users can upload original songs to gather fans. Then others can listen to, share, and comment on the song. Follow your favorite songwriters to always know when new music is out. Experienced musicians are also on the platform, even though the network started as a space for future artists.
