Nothing like visuals to capture the attention of folks and create awareness for a brand or product. Depending of your target audience you want to use one of the available social networks. From your experience, what do you think about Instagram as a marketing tool to reach teens?
Forget about “build it and they will come.” Products without scalable distribution channels will fail to gain traction. Instead of hiring an expensive marketing team, take this course to master SEO, content marketing, retargeting, viral loops, email marketing, and sales funnel optimization.

Yes, Instagram, much more so than Facebook (which is an older demographic); though at the moment, Snapchat is bigger still with younger demos.  Here's an (albeit old) reference: https://socialmediaweek.org/blog/2015/04/9-major-social-networks-age/

You will find little in published stats regarding teens under 18 because of laws protecting minors against tracking for their own safety (to keep out adult predators).
