    I absolutely would use it. Even with no product.

    I would use it to build an audience, probably would start on YouTube and IG.

    Once you have an audience, it's much easier to launch, assuming your audience matches your product/service.

    This shows two problems with the internet.
    (a) How incomprehensibly screwed up in the head it's making some people
    (b) It brings that to our attention. It's not enough to not watch the news anymore; because the internet will indirectly filter through specifically the most messed up things anyway.

    What MJ said. Plus... if you start to build a following then you could figure out what products/services they’d buy, if at all.

    Consider using Facebook groups (and forums) as places to find people talking about needs.

    Curious why you’d start with YouTube and IG and not include Facebook in that. (My gut tells me to use YT and IG if posting content, and FB groups for learning about what drives similar people - and a quick way to find and help them.)

    Facebook must be taken for what it is: a simple tool.
    Instead it's a drug.

    Not so much guns but easy access to gun.

    Especially, assault rifles.

    I would include FB in that, probably FB groups. But YT probably would be my starting point.

    Oh and we can't forget the soon-to-be-convicted-felons so swept up by gaining popularity for live feeding their crimes - which, of course someone fails to tell them WILL be used as evidence in the court to convict them of the crimes they carry out.

    ...but I digress - I do agree it is a great tool for building business and using it for opportune feedback where Action, Assessment and Adjustment is concerned, since most customers would mostly be on some SM platform, but solely for such.

    I disconnected ALL my personal SM platforms back in 2016 - specifically when I recognised I didn't require validation from strangers on the net for doing regular, supposedly personal and human things; however, as I became more focused in business, I use it as an essential tool to connect with and obtain feedback about what my customers require and the best ways to deliver these requirements to them.

    I see it as a valuable tool for those business purposes mentioned, and like any tool, e.g. A hammer - it can be used to build remarkable things; however, if misused, can become a murder weapon, thus, SM, when utilised in the most effective way, can drive fruitful success in our pockets and amidst our customer-base.

    Just my 2cents!
