Well the answer is always - whereever YOUR customers are located...

But in my opinion, the best for B2B is LinkedIn because it is focused on business. And then Twitter is a close second.

The others could obviously be used for B2B as well, but I feel that are more leaning toward B2C.

I did a quick comparison chart of the marketing opportunities for each here: http://www.sbmarketingtools.com/comp...-for-marketing

Thumbs up B2b

If you want B2B there is no other social network to think of. Just the only one which is the best is LinkedIn.

As per my view and study, I feel LinkedIn to be the best networking site for B2B businesses. It is the world’s largest professional network that can be up to 300 percent more effective for B2B lead generation when compared to Facebook and Twitter. With its section of personal profiles, discussion groups, and advertising platform, we can directly reach the decision makers who are most likely to be interested in your company’s products or services.
