Should I use all the social media websites?
If I want to market my blog posts and affiliate products then is is a good idea to use all the social media websites or stick to just a couple of the better ones?

Depends. Depends on your niche and depends on what you mean by "all" social sites. There are probably like 100 or more but only a handful are worth it. Least there use to be alot.
At the very least start with the big ones like facebook, twitter, pinterest, ect. Another idea is to track what buttons are actually getting clicked. I use Easy social sharing and it shows how many clicks each button gets. Can be interesting. For example, I get people clicking Reddit. Did not think it would get much.
And it depends on your niche/audience. If it's visual, pushing pinterest might be best.

There are so many different ones that I think it would be best to just use the ones that are best suited for your needs. I'm not any kind of social media pro or anything but that just seems to make sense to me.

Personally I would use the ones that will give you the best chance to achieve whatever you are trying to AND that have the target audience that you are wanting.
If you waste your time on too many of them you will not be able to be as effective as you could be if you were just concentrating on the ones that would best meet your needs.

It seems like it would be time consuming if you are using a lot of them. It might be more time efficient if you just use a few of the ones that you have the best chances of success with.

Maybe not all platforms are applicable to your business. You can try Facebook and Twiiter then you can consider adding niche social media site in your marketing arsenal. Not all your audience can be found on one platform so I understand that you want to build your presence in more platforms.

To share your website links and unique blog content on social media platforms are important but the type of social media depends on your business niche.
For example, if you are selling jewellery or makeup or fashion accessories Pinterest, Instagram, weheartit will be the best choice.
If you have SEO, software development, app development services to promote, Facebook page, LinkedIn company page, Twitter official account are the best choice.

It seems like I think different from everyone. I think you should use as many social media as you can.
The more the better in my opinion. There's no harm of using too many

I was thinking of using maybe 5 to start with and grow to include more as time permits.
Do you have any that you would recommend besides the usual Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter?

There is no real answer to your question, it really depends on "you" and what you want to do. I have used only Facebook to some degree of success, and not because anyone told me what to do. Look at the tools, look at your needs, then decide.

HI it will be better if you stick to the famous nes in the initial stage, Get a feel of it. Let what works on those social medias. For example, the message you nee dto send across Facebook should be Caual in nature, LinkedIn has to be profesional(which means - Cut to the chase, no blaggering), Try putting short messages on twitter an dalways make sure that you will use the wright tag and will try to stimulate discussions by proper invitation. Initially focus on these 3 and lateron diversify to other social channels also.

Don't try to master them all at once or you'll become overwhelmed (my own experience). I don't know what your blog is about and what products you sell, but I assume starting with Facebook is pretty safe. If you've got a lot of likes on your Facebook Fanspage and the audience is engaging, it's easier to build audience on any other social media sites you're about to use.
Just my 2 cents

It will really help if you can utilize all that appear significant. But I suggest that you focus on the mainstream like Facebook and Twitter.

Heck no. I think you should ONLY focus on the ones where your target audience is. If your audience is mostly visual people, then your primary focus should be PInterest. If they're business professionals, then LinkedIn would be the best play.
If you try to target all at once you're limiting your chances of really dominating the one you're target audience frequents. That's the "be everywhere" syndrome. It may seem like a good idea but stick with the ones that work best for you first.
That's my thinking.
I agree with you here, Ron. I like your idea of tracking the buttons that get clicked because that's a major indicator of what social site is more popular with your particular audience.

If you have a time then join all otherwise If you can't give enough time then chose some selected Social media only because of It will be better.
But for SEO, If you will chose all Social Media then your site will ranking will be increased.
I mean there is thousands of Social Media sites or maybe Millions.
