      Nice hub! I certainly agree that an online marketer should expand across a variety of different social networking sites in order to enhance their level of promotion. Thank you for providing this enhanced list of social networking sites, as I can honestly say that I was unaware of some of these online communities.

      Any thoughts on the best one to use since they seem to perform the same or similar function. I've only used Tumblr. Super easy.
