LinkedIn Tops in Social Media for Business to Business Marketing

Of all the social media marketing tools that business to business marketers use, LinkedIn ranks as number one. A report by B2B Online states that over 25% of social B2B marketers picked LinkedIn as their most important tool. 20% mention Facebook while 19% say Blogging is most important. Interestingly, only 13% selected Twitter as their number one tool and YouTube is tops for just 7%.

They are used for different purposes, of course…LinkedIn more for lead generation and Facebook for promotion.
