Social Media Cheat Sheet [Infographic]


For anyone that has a brand, ministry, or business online, you have to be involved in some kind of social media to effectively market, network, or reach a good quantity of people. Because of this need, so many social medias have popped up and each one has their own culture behind it.

Because of how many social media networks are out there, enjoy this infographic below for some key tips.

  • Give your Facebook page a purpose. Create regular, useful content to give your fans a reason to return.
  • Pinterest is a strong driver of traffic to websites, but it's mostly only useful for that purpose.Social-Media-cheat-sheet-620x1853
