    What Social Media platform brings in the most traffic for your hubs?

    We're all using many platforms: Twitter, Facebook, Digg, StumbleUpon etc. and, since we're active there, we're also posting our links to the hubs we create here. I have started using my Facebook account to drive some traffic here, but will test out other systems too. Which seem to work best for your? Are the results different based on the niches you cover in your hubs?

    It really depends on how active you are on each platform.  I have found Twitter to be the best one for me although I am active elsewhere too.  I think this might be because people that do not follow you can still see your messages in their search results.

    I would have to say Facebook by far. Stumbleupon would be a distant second.

    Definitely Facebook.  I just use it to post my articles and follow potential news sources. Had one article go viral recently through Facebook.  I make the contents "public" and pick up a lot of followers that way.  I keep a seperate account for my personal stuff.  Twitter works OK for me too.

      Facebook for me, too. As soon as my articles pass the Quality Inpection and start getting the ads (takes 24hrs), I post a link on my facebook, with a little description. This gets me the most views. I do get occasional google views tho

      I should add that one way to improve traffic on Twitter is to use "hashtags."  You make keywords searchable by marking them with the pound symbol, ie.#topic or two or more keywords can be made one, i.e. #mentalhealth.
