    Facebook for me, but it also depends a lot on your niche and target audience.

    Depends on what audience I target. Twitter is huge in the US, Facebook more in my own country.

    it depends on the usage and what country are you from and what would your target audience..

    For me, it would be facebook because it is the most popular here at my country.

    As others have mentioned, I guess it depends on your niche, target audience etc.

    Currently for me it's Facebook, but I am looking at more SSM for 2017.

    I see, then they're definitely not a waste of time. :)

    Business wise - as others already mentioned it - it depends on the type of business you have and the country you target. Some businesses/niches run good on Instagram, others are better on Twitter or Facebook. There are niches/businesses, which can be equally good on most social media sites. Pinterest or Linkedin are two other networks worth considering and often overlooked. For instance Linkedin outranks Instagram in the US, so if you have the type of business which can run well there, while it might not the most convenient for promotion purposes, don't forget about it. There are niches, which can perform extremely well on Pinterest. If you have an adult business, Tumblr and Twitter will be the two biggest, then there are Tagged, MocoSpace, MeetMe, PoF etc. Snapchat, Tinder are two mobile apps, which are strong when it comes to adult.

    If you're looking for the highest rate of engagement, that can be found on Instagram in most cases.
    Just look at the threads in the Social Networking section, for a great while the vast majority of the threads were related to Facebook and Youtube, nowadays most of them are about Instagram. Sure thing, the forum got a lot bigger in the past few years, but these trends are not a coincidence.

    I'd say, don't limit yourself to just one network, do at least 2 or 3 out of the bigger ones or out of those, which suit your target audience the most.

    If i have money to waste in ads = Facebook
    If i dont have money, only organic = Instagram.

    Yes, depend on niche, but if you dont have money to FaceAds, you will work a lot for nothing.
    The Facebook Algorithm its like a cocain to brands, if u gonna keep on Facebook witouth Ads, dont do a Page, do a Profile (get big and then you turn into a page)
    Organic reach gonna screw you.

    Why personal first? Can you reach more people organically with a personal account? And, why switching to page later? Pls explain. Tx.

    Because Personal page you can free add people or use script to add people, you can go in groups and seed.
    Your EdgeRank is way lighter as a profile then as a page.
    Your reach is way way bigger because of Facebook Algorithm (Facebook was made for advertisers, not for people)
    You can grow something like 5k friends, then turn into a page (For ads or other benefits)
    You can even turn the big one into a page, and reply the Profile method, If they both are about same content, you can merge both.
    And here we are, 0 turned into 5k, 5k turned into 5k+5k.
    But you reach still will suck as organic page.
    I used to adm 3 pages.
    One with 20M people, another with 30k , another with 2k
    The one with 20M have a real reach of near 8k daily only. lol look that % that u lost.
    Its hard to get back the organic reach, its a mix of internal ads for ur fans + high engagement with the ppl who are new with ur Edge Rank.

    For myself personally, I'd have to go with Instagram. I've experimented with Facebook and Twitter, and I'm sure if I had put more into it I would have found more success, but I've always found success with Instagram in every niche or venture I've worked on. I'm more than sure certain niches work better on certain platforms, but Instagram has always worked very well for me.

    In terms of personal use, Twitter.
    In terms of monetization, Instagram.
