Many of you have probably already seen a version of this visual that is a short explanation of the difference between all the popular social media outlets.
Here is my slightly expanded explanation of what this visual demonstrates:
Twitter: Allows you to quickly update your social network about what you are doing at that moment in time.
Facebook: Allows you to share your likes and interestes with your social network.
LinkedIn: Allows you to socially network with professionals. You may post your resume and join professional groups as well.
Foursquare: Allows you to share your current location with your social network. Many locations reward users with deals/coupons for sharing their “check-in” with their social network.
YouTube: Allows you to share videos with the world.
Instagram: Allows you to take and artistically edit photos to share with your social networks.
Pinterest: Allows you to share bookmarks with your social network in the form of an inspiration board display.
Google+: Yeah, still don’t understand this either. I have successfully used this a few times to view “private” photo albums that my friends have shared with me.
Last.fm: Haven’t had any experience with Last.fm. I prefer Pandora. I know other people like Spotify.
