Recently, we shared LUMA Partner’s insane infographic showing how complicated social media has become. The post received a lot of feedback, largely centered around what was missing. There were a few major social media outlets that seemed near impossible to miss, mainly 2012’s darling child Pinterest.
The largest problem with LUMA’s graph was that it was created in June of 2011, long before Pinterest became nationally popular.
Never mind: hosting provider InMotion Hosting made a graphic a few months ago that included Pinterest and a few others, this time in the form of a periodic table. Put it this way, if you were going to try to tell your grandmother how she could advertise her organic blueberry business online, this is what you would use.
It’s still confusing, cluttered and ever-changing, but the periodic table provides at least some hope of creating a strategy to navigating the big social media networks.
Things are crowded down there, so you probably want to click to make it larger.

Once again, this is not every social media tool ever created in one graphic, so that’s why ___________ isn’t on the chart.
