Defining Social Media Platforms

How to Explain Social Media

Three Ships Media had a wonderful graphic defining social media using a donut as an example – a fantastic way of explaining the differences to a social media virgin (truly, they do exist!). Here it is, with slight modifications:

Twitter:            I’m eating a donut.

Facebook:       I like donuts.

Instagram:     Here is a vintage photo of a donut.

Pinterest:        Here is a donut recipe.

YouTube:        Here I am eating a donut.

LinkedIn:        Donut-making is one of my skills.

Google+:          I’m a Google employee who eats donuts.
