Which is best fit social media in your profession

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

Pinterest: Good in colors and graphics. This is the social media for people who can create nice pictures.

Instagram: Obsessed with phone camera or looking to make career in fashion and modeling or you have a design boutique,  show what you have on Instagram.

YouTube : Can you add special effects like movie titanic in your media files or love to so.  Go YouTube,  learn from fellow YouTubers,  create your own channel.

Facebook: Good for students,  build your community like MBA Class of 2018 or Join your Alumni network over Facebook. Build connection,  get leverage of being known.

Twitter: Do you make friends with strange people. Or you speak like a politician. This aunty neighborhood aka Twitter make sure to ease your sour throat.  Narrate your story here and it will spread like wildfire. Ideal for people in sales and marketing profession.

Reddit: Have a question or want to share your experience.  Find a sub reddit and contribute. You can ask and answer about anything here.

LinkedIn: Looking for a dream job or that candidate who increase your sales.  LinkedIn is ideal to connect in ties and business suits.

Google Plus: Over the years,  you have build a huge database of email contacts.  Sending email to everyone about everything is plainly not so polite. Use power of Google Plus to know who is doing what.  Interact and build relationships.

Quora: Have a question? You know the answer too but not pretty sure if this works.  Go to Quora and Ask and Answer.

SlideShare: Have a business model? Want to know peer opinion.  Prepare your presentation and share with care. Perhaps you may build a seed capital or get that investor to buy your business.

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.

Information War, Personal Security and Me

Too much of anything is just bad. You cannot consume too much in your tummy, you cannot consume too much in your mind. I was never a social media person because if I don't know a person how can I interact and share my personal interests. However, at one point I worked for a social media company and created many accounts, written many social media guides and published online.
The noise that social media creates gives an illusion that you can make big things out of it. Though I never spend many hours on social media but I started sharing content on it, on and off, and with certainty I can say my own sites performed better without social sharing.
From my experiences I found going on many social channels means dilution of ideas. Because I am individual and not a company I cannot go to many social channels and create content. I don't have budget to appoint someone who can work for me on social media. If you are individual blogger like me and creating many social channels for sure…

Is push mail notification a non sense

Automation is good but is it reliable too?
For very long time Android phone was alien to me. But considering public demand of SEND ME Whatsapp rants lastly I invested in this idiot gadget.
Not more than 24 hours and I realized it's a complete waste of money given if you do not take too many photos and if you do not work in an android environment. But anyway hole was already burnt in my pocket.
Only one thing become easy for me that is reading email. I kept only emails on and relied on email notifications. However today no mails popped out. I thought may be everyone celebrating India's Republic Day.
I text message to CEO of reputed company regarding a pending email answer. He is a busy fellow. You can get him easily. Since matter was important I thought to give a text message.
Out of nothing I opened my email and found his reply which he did early morning.
SHOCKED.
Lesson learnt check your mail box manually before texting.
