Whether your business is traditional or entirely online, whether you sell your products to the general public or whether you are a B2B service provider, whether your company is an international brand or a start-up in creation, your presence in social networks must be modulated according to:

1. The audience you want to target
2. The goals you want to achieve
3. The intrinsic qualities of your business

There is not only Facebook in life so which social network is adapted according to your type of company?

Facebook: to convey emotions and target your audience

Facebook is suitable for:
1. Brands with a strong ability to produce emotion (ex: Coca-Cola, Starbucks …)
2. Companies able to publish highly shareable content (eg National Geographic with its exceptional photos of animals and landscapes, GoPro with its videos, Buzzfeed with its viral articles)
3. Companies with assets in terms of videos, visuals and photos: 93% of the most shared publications include a photo
4. Companies using Facebook as channel to broadcast special offers, coupons and contests.
5. B2B companies with a budget to use Facebook’s advertising platform to target their audience and push their content.

Your business will not succeed on Facebook if:
1. You only relay internet communication or purely promotional content.
2. You do not have time to develop a community, to create and relay content on a daily basis.
3. Your company has not set a clear goal and / or does not know how to calculate ROI.
4. Therefore, you will not release a budget to support your action on Facebook.

Twitter: to reach influencers

Twitter is suitable for:
1. Companies and media with assets in terms of content to share.
2. Freelancers, agencies and consulting firms wishing to demonstrate their expertise.
3. B2B companies wishing to connect with influencers in their field (journalists, experts, bloggers …).
4. Start-ups wishing to connect with influencers and publicize their solutions.
5. B2C companies able to produce emotions, expectation and virality through their content and products.
6. Brands capable of conveying emotions (eg Oreo, Apple …).

Your business will not succeed on Twitter if:
1. Your company does not turn into a creator of content that can interest your target.
2. You do not put the necessary resources from the start to emerge from the 1000s of accounts.

Youtube: to transmit knowledge and tell a story

Youtube is suitable for:
1. Brands able to stage themselves visually and play the storytelling card.
2. Companies capable of creating videos that create emotions: to make people smile, surprise, move.

4. The ecommerces: the video (eg a test product) is an element that reassures the buyer in his research before purchase.
5. Media, music groups, artists, filmmakers, naturally adapted for video.

Your company will not succeed on Youtube if:
1. You make promotional videos: only videos that create emotions around your brand or answer your customers’ questions will help you achieve your goals.
2. You are looking for “shots”: without subscribers, it is extremely difficult to create a viral video .

1. Brands able to develop a storytelling and generate emotions
2. B2C companies have products that naturally generate desire: shoes, jewelry, travel …

4. B2B companies with a budget to use the Instagram advertising platform to target their audience and push their images.
