A platform is a social network or a component of a social network. Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram are all social platforms.

However, some marketers may consider Facebook news feed and Facebook stories to be different platforms, since they may have different audiences and use different marketing strategies.

Platform can also refer to a social media relationship management tool. In this case it is called a social media management platform.
