There are many QR Code generators that will allow you to link a QR Code to your Facebook Page, Twiiter Account, LinkedIn profile, or Pinterest boards. But if you are a decent-sized company, you probably have more than one social media account – the popular ones for businesses being Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Pinterest.

How do you choose between all these social media platforms?

The answer is simple – don’t. Why choose when you can give your customer the option to choose. That’s right – a QR Code that gives the scanning user the option of choosing which social media platform she is interested in. We are calling it the Social Media QR Code.
