since social networking sites have more users compared to social book marking site, I believe you get better reach by marketing through social networking site.

That's very true. However, you can get immense traffic from social bookmarking site like reddit if you use in a good way.

Social networking sites are those where we stay in touch with our family and friends. Like, Facebook, Twitter, Myspace
And, a Social bookmarking site is an online bookmarking system. It let us share the web pages that we have bookmarked with the world, and is very useful for increasing website traffic. Some of the social bookmarking sites are, Reddit, Digg, WeHeartit, Pinterest

Oh yes, In my opinion Social Bookmarking sites are much better in marketing. One site about which everybody knows of is Reddit. There people can gain huge traffic by posting the right content on it

Reddit can make your content viral, however, getting traffic from Reddit is not easy. If you do not have a lot of karma points, you might have to hire an influencer to market your contents on reddit.

I don't think so. More people use social networking site, therefore, you will have wider reach compared to social bookmarking site.

I'll explain through better example. On Social networking sites, there is larger demographic of people, their hobbies differ, they have different interests and mostly they come on social sites to socialize more or less. Out of every 100 people, only 50 or 60 people (this too is a generous number I'm giving you) will be interested in buying your product. Whereas for the Bookmarking, you are already in a place where like-minded people who have common interests gather. So, there is a very good chance that out of 100 people, 75 to 85 people will go for your product.

Latest studies have proved, social media is good for branding and engagement, not for traffic or revenue

I accept your explanation. Social media sites have a very large user base, however, this does not mean each and everyone will check what you are promoting. Social bookmarking sites are content discovery platform and I believe your content have better visibility.

That's very true. If you are a marketer, you should be using all sorts of platforms. If you are using facebook and twitter, you should also be using instagram and linked in. If you are using Pinterest, you should also be using reddit and Stumbleupon.

Are you referring to social bookmarking sites such as Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit, etc? Even though you can use both techniques for promoting your business or brand, social networking sites like Facebook are used more for sharing personal information with people you know, while social bookmarking sites are used for sharing online content with the world.

Social networking sites have more active users than social bookmarking site, therefore reach is wider. Social networking sites are used to share personal as well as professional information, where as social bookmarking sites are reserved for sharing anything except things of personal nature.

If you are a webmaster or marketer, you should use all kinds of social media sites. You should not be limited to handful of popular sites but also on lesser known such as Digg, or Mix.
