Personally I am currently using these 3 Social Media Sites for business and you should also all three can give your business what it needs. I have gained a great income using them in my Marketing plan. I really do wish some people would present their business and treat it like a business.
Remember when creating these sites and adding your personal profile you are leaving a business card and how you present your brand your name will be remembered. Keep it professional and classy folks.
Cheers to you and your business success,
