Default Twitter!

Twitter for sure! But I find that using multiple platforms produces better results than, say, only using Facebook. Not every platform is perfect, so you need to shop around for the ones that work together to give you the results you need. Here's a link to blog that talks about how to use different platforms during an event: http://blog.eventsupply.com/social-m...vent-planners/

It mainly talks about Twitter, but also how important YouTube and Flickr can be for post-event feedback and networking.

As per the contents and the content consumption patterns Facebook is a leader, I mean this gives you the combine effect of Youtube, Flickr and twitter along with a tinge of Myspace.

Since you have asked about after Facebook, then I will say it is Youtube. The main reason is you can show text and pictures combinedly in a Video that leaves an impact on the viewers, all that is required proper marketing of your Youtube channel and results will start pouring in.

Default Twitter, For the Win

You can honestly do well with social media using just Facebook and Twitter alone. But Twitter is great for a number of reasons.

1) Distribution of your content - Twitter serves as a great way to send your valuable, targeted content to your valuable, targeted audience.

2) Crowdsourced content ideas - you can use tools to glean valuable focused information about what your questions your target audience has and then answer those questions with your content. Similarly, you can see what interests them, their pain points, etc. and create content that speaks to that.

3) Networking - when done right you can meet some amazing people on Twitter. Relationships and even partnerships can be forged on Twitter.

4) Recruiting - If you want to find some top notch talent out there, you can definitely do so on Twitter.

5) Ask questions - Need help or direction on a project or content creation idea? just ask Twitter. Want to get some feedback on a project idea? Tweet it out. The Twitter community is great for this once you are able to sift through the noise.

Hope this helps,

I would say that there is no 1 perfect social media tool.

Social media works best when integrated effectively with other tools.

Well It depends, If it is a business to business marketing, I'd choose Twitter. But I'd try you tube for sure because video marketing is very effective.

I'd say Twitter or YouTube but you have to find out which works best for your particular needs along with if you have the proper resources to utilize each. I'd say YT takes more effort if you plan on doing routinely videos etc. versus just tweeting.

YT is efficient...the best video marketing site...but you need Social media to promote you YT video. If you don't promote, It won't get as many viewers as you want. So make sure your YT video reaches out you targeted audience.
