    This is a tutorial on how to create social media pages (or simply pages) in different social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.

    Facebook Pages

    1. You need to have an account first before you go to facebook.com/pages/create.php
    2. Then choose a classification for your business:
      • Local business or place
      • Artist, band, or public figure
      • Company, organization, or institution
      • Entertainment
      • Brand or product
      • Cause of community

    3. Complete Basic Information like the name of your business, location, contact info and picture.
    4. And you're good to go.

    Google+ Pages

    1. Again you should have an account first before you go to plus.google.com/pages/create
    2. Then choose a category appropriate for your business:

      • Local Business or Place - it can be a hotel, restaurant, etc.
      • Product or Brand - it can be apparels, cars, etc.
      • Company, Institution or Organization - as the title already suggests.
      • Arts, Entertainment or Sports - it can be movies, tv, books, etc.
      • Other - if you think the other categories doesn't fit your business.

    3. Add your business' information.
      (This is important because Google+ is locating your business)
      - Location
      - Phone Number

      If your business isn't on the list then choose "Add Your Business to Google" and fill up the information.

    Twitter Profile
    1. Just make a profile account. Go to twitter.com
    2. In the start screen you can see the log in and sign up form. Just complete the Sign Up Form and add followers.

    3. You only have 160 characters to have a big impression on the world. So make every characters count.
    4. Make sure that you use the business' picture/logo.

    Pinterest Profile and Boards

    4. Find new friends to follow
    5. Create Boards
    6. Pin Your Favorites - You can repin or like the pictures
    7. Make sure that you follow the Pinterest Etiquettes!

    I think China wants to have more control on everything. Here are just some of the websites useful to that subject:

    The list is not really overwhelming although most of it are top websites worldwide. And you might read some reasons that you can't comprehend why did they blocked it.

    Social media platforms can be powerful tools for almost any business if used correctly. More businesses
    seem to have a problem with using these sites correctly rather than how to set up their own accounts.
    There are too many businesses out there with Facebook pages and Twitter accounts that end up collecting
    dust. Using these sites effectively is one of the hardest things to do in Internet marketing.

    Those are a few of the most used sites online. It's kinda sad living there with only a few sites (not that few, really) are accessible...

    This is a great post. It's nothing people can't figure out on their own, but anything to make the whole process easier is certainly a plus. I'm sure that these aren't the only social media sites, though, and anypne who can add to this list will be a great help.

    Featuring a product on a social media site is one of the fastest ways to bring attention to it. Offer a promotion along with it for your online community members and watch your sales skyrocket.
