- For SEO purposes, if you're a business, you'll want to post different text for a message broadcast in a number of different networks. They all provide "links" back to your company that the search engines want to see. The search engines value those who are active on social media more than those who may have just created fly-by-night websites that have no busy employees. If you only post on one or two social networks, you may be seen as less active...especially if you're not posting on Google+ where Google values activity more highly.
The lower the activity, the more possible it is that a search engine will decide that your website isn't being run by a real company or a company that is popular enough on the market to employ a marketing person.
The bottom line is that search engines value those who are comprehensive and not trying to do things in an overly simplified manner. Making one's own marketing life simpler (by dupilcating the same content on different platforms or not bothering with other popular platforms at all) is not necessarily what it takes to score high in the search engines these days.
Privately, Facebook is the general world-wide network to tell people what you're doing, but there are local social networks like VKontakte where you're more likely to find, for instance, your Russian or Ukrainian friends.Apr 26, 2013
