Without a doubt, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram are the elephants in the social marketing zoo, at least in terms of the largest number of visits per month. But this is one big zoo, as shown in Figure 1-1, which displays only 36 of the hundreds of social sites. Among these sites, you’ll find lions and tigers and bears, and more than a few turtles, trout, squirrels, and seagulls.
