How To Choose The Right Social Media Platform For Your Goals [INFOGRAPHIC]

Social media does not lend itself to a one-size-fits-all approach.

Different media are better shared on different platforms for different organizations and different goals.

If you want to drive traffic to your website, focus your efforts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Reddit and SlideShare.

The infographic below, created by Social Barrel, helps brands tailor their content creation efforts to match different social media platforms, depending on what they want to achieve:
