  1. Hey Jitendra,

    Glad to read your interesting post and I’ve highly enjoyed your Infographics which is full of stats. Social media is a powerful tool for content distribution, but the truth is that most of us aren’t taking advantage of its full power. Each social network has unique features, options and user behaviors that affect how content is published.

    Social media is more about relationship building than straight-up promotion. This is actually good for us because it can get new people looking at our social channels.

    The key to getting the most out of each network is to know how to mix and match all of the variables to reach as many people as possible, as often as possible, without coming across as redundant, intrusive or annoying to our friends and followers. Eventually, thanks for sharing your experience with us.

    With best wishes,

    Amar kumar
