Social Media -- are you using it as much as you might for your genealogy research?

We often talk about social media and genealogy since the options continue to expand, both in personal usage and as a family history research tool. So many platforms, so little time!

The In-Depth Genealogist did a recent post on this Social Media and Genealogy: It’s Not Just About Chats With Friends Anymore.  The post discusses the myriad ways that one can use social media.  Just one of the associated graphics (see above) was startling in how “many” and “different” social media outlets it listed.  I can say that I recognized a very small percentage of those listed!

What are your top 5 social media platforms as far as family history research?  What value do they each provide to you and your research?
