You can simply using search engine to do this “little” research. Note that you must be careful of aggressive behavior in social media, especially Twitter, or you’re gonna get suspended or banned.
3. Pick Only Some
There are so many social media in the internet, but you don’t have to use all of those. Just pick some you really like or easy to use. However, Facebook and Twitter still in the first place which used by people around the world. If you don’t like both, there are still others you can figure out and begin your business branding.

Boom, you just have the same writing, but with different diction. Yes, that’s the trick of paraphrasing. Just don’t get used to it 🙂
