Which Social Media would you use for making a following VSCO grid, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Vero? Which one is Ideal? I have been confused on which platform to post. I don’t like too many platforms to work on. 1 or 2 platforms would be enough. What do you folks think is better? Which platform is ideal to share your works and communicate with the fans as well?

Which platforms to keep and which one to ditch?

Thanks!

online marketing is an all or nothing business…

are you on linked in?? how bout pinterest?? flickr, might as well join 500px while you are at it.

I stick to instagram because its easy and galleries expect that sort of thing. But if it was just me I would not use anything, too much work lol.

Honestly none, no one uses facebook anymore except for old people, or just people like me who just use it to message others, Instagram’s algorithm isnt too good, flickr is dead, and too specific. 

Honestly, even though I hate instagram’s algorithm, it may be the best option.

That is a ridiculous statement.  I run a craft beer facebook page and it has both young and old…more so on the young.  Total members are over 1100.  This facebook is for the old nonsense is pure rubbish.

Instagram has lost its charm for photographer. Its sort of showcasing someones portfolio.

Hi Roshan Eric Kim here. At this point, unfortunately your best bet is Instagram for building a following

But when I read your blog posts, I always get confused about using social media. I can’t afford a website so i was confused on using anyone one platform to showcase my work. Instagram demotivates me when I see other photographers work. So i tried to post on VSCO, but the audience is very less.
Thank you for your time Eric! Peace✌🏻

Instagram is number one. You have to work hard at it everyday and you will be up against a lot of mediocre to poor content, but it is the easiest way to interact with other photographers and build a network.

Be careful though, it can be a sticky trap to get out of. You may become more concerned with the amount of love you get rather than the quality of your content, and who exactly the love is coming from. 10 likes for a great photo from the right people, is better than 100 likes for a mediocre photo from the wrong people.
