Yes it is possible if you have proper knowledge how to use these networks. A community on a single interest and belonging to single niche is required

They're like a media where you can promote your stuffs at real time. Or, anyone who follows you can see your posts in their timeline. They're basically free for the most part and everyone flocks on these places these days. Like what they say, it's the millennials!

Other than promoting your stuffs, you can store photos, videos, and etc, which can serve as memories you've saved for a particular period of time. And then you get to communicate with your friends or know people from other parts of the world.

Basically, you get in touch with your friends, families, or relatives, at the same time, create new friendships.

Yes, it is possible. Social media is a great platform for you to reach wider audiences easily and faster. Most of the population are now using social media sites/apps, it's easy for them to share content and spread the word of what they see online to family and friends.

Most people also go online to research about a product and sometimes check on other user's reviews and experiences prior to deciding if they'll do the purchase.

As a business, it's a great tool for you to take advantage, it's easy to create accounts/pages, easy to manage and mostly free (except paid ads but still cheaper than a full-blown marketing effort). Some people even think that if you don't have an online presence, it's as if you don't exist.

I've run a facebook promotion for just a few tens of pounds for a local squash club - it was easy to limit the promotion area to just a few miles radius around the club
