    I promote my forums with both, and I find it depends on the community, as to which works better for promoting.

    I just started a new blog and I planned to promoting it on facebook and twitter. These are where the traffic is. You must use it to grow your site.

    Both works best at its own places. Facebook is more tha twitter as you could keep your post engage in Groups and bound people to be seen your post.

    I guess it depends on the audience and how click bait your links are! Which are a pet hate of mine. I personally use Twitter.

    Both do great IMO. I use TwitterFeed to post my content over there.

    IFTTT does a great job too.

    I'd highly recommend using this plugin to work with your socials. It is much better than third party alternatives. I use the free version, but the pro version may be more ideal. Despite the lack of engagement I have on my Facebook page especially compared to my Twitter, I get better clickthroughs on Facebook so keep that in mind.

    When I used to have a blog I used social media a lot, especially Facebook. The thing is that I didn't manage to get my readers to check in on the blog every now and then, but I did manage to get them to like my Facebook-page. Through that I could post for every new post I added, and it'd pop up in their news feed. To put it in another way: I used social media to give them a gentle reminder.

    I promote my blog and blog posts on both platforms. I think it depends on your audience though. So pay attention to that. Post for them and not just for yourself and your business.

    Facebook is a bit outdated maybe, I think twitter is the future. :)

    Twitter doesn't work well for all my 3 web sites.... Facebook works 100x better with 100x less effort

    Average people prefer Facebook

    I've found that IT and general technologies are better with Twitter

    I do everything. Instagram(13k followers) Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler. Its free traffic ya know. You have to keep at it daily tho, kinda like working out. Many people quit just a month in.

    Facebook is more responsive for promotion I would say. Twitter is kinda messy. Also, I recommend you to go with Instagram and Youtube. They both will expand your blog recognition. But you should use some SEO tools to optimize your overall promotion strategy and make it more effective. Just paid advertisement not always working well. Interaction with followers, beautiful pictures, and qualitative content is the key.

    I suggest that you promote your blog on both sites since they are both successful.

    It totally depends on the blog niche you have. However, I think Facebook is the more engaging platform than Twitter as it gives better results.
