        I think that to have the maximum impact you should definitively go for the biggest, first! But reaching out, or at least having a somewhat good profile across many different platforms can certainly have it's upsides.

        I think that It all depends on what you're aiming for...

          Feb 21 2012: I find it quiet cumbersome and time consuming to maintain numerous account, to add on blogging. Maybe creating a personal social media strategy could straighten that out. Another aspect I discovered is that if your content (blog, tweets) is good enough, other people would carry them to the other platforms, to me the focus should be on good content and a few outlets (Twitter, LinkedIn) to disseminate them.
