Social networks take huge space over Internet. Anyone can join any social media for work or passion. Today it's a big playground for creating connections and build human capital.
Often there is confusion about social media selection. People join many but enjoy none. If you are a professional and thinking to select right social for you, here I have tried to divide social media uses according to professions.
Medium.com : Good for Copy writers, content marketers and authors. Written a book? Now take to medium, start blogging. Let people know your book is available on Amazon.
GIT Hub: Do you know a computer language. Go to GIT Hub. Write your code, build programs that work for humans. Build connection with fellow GITans

In today's world, working on one social media is not enough. However, you can give first priority to best fit social network for you and keep others as secondary.
