    I personally would have to go with YouTube and Twitch. I think that YouTube makes it extremely easy to lookup games and content creators related to those games while Twitch makes it  a lot easier to connect with the world in those games and increases the desirability to play in that world.

    I agree with most others here.  I use game forums almost exclusively and get really annoyed when I find out, days or weeks after the fact, that important info was posted to some social media site I don't use and not shared on the forums.  Pick one place to post everything then do what you like with all the others.

    PS: Reddit AMAs are the worst.

    Official website and forums are my number one choice. I also really like official blog or newsletter. Having it tie in with email notifications is the cherry on top.

    The nicer the forums the more I am inclined to participate in the conversation.

    I always go to the main website first then and I used to go to the news section but lately it does not really update so nowadays I open the forums next.
    I always seem to miss the next Twitch thing and depend on people linking it in the forum. But that is mostly the live stream link that does not work anymore....but I do not give up and usually find the stream

    So what is my favorite ? Just the news section or newsletters. It is clear and easy. I do not need to search, the title tells me where to find the information I want. If I have time for diving deeper, the forums.

    I do not use many social media, it takes too much time searching and contain a lot of disctractions. I dislike them and even distrust some.

    I prefer the game website or official forums to update my knowledge on game info.

    Any footage outside that, would have me looking at yt and twitch.

    Social media however, to me, is not considered a trustworthy source of information, unless it directly comes from the game's own institution.

    Reddit, I suppose? /r/pantheonmmo has been a pretty good source. I find Twitter and Facebook basically only useful for the political mosh pits.

    So Twitter is actually really good for putting out downtime or server issue notices. It isn't tied to any of the internal servers a company uses so if a worse case occurs where the game and website are down Twitter is a great place to get updates.

     

    Facebook is dying a slow painful death but advertise away on it. All the discussions on any post though are going to be toxic because that is the nature of FB.

     

    Instagram can be limited but useful. If you're going to have someone running Social Media for the company there is no reason not to treat it similiar to twitter and just double up the posts there.

     

    Youtube is really good but I don't like a lot of the current Pantheon content on there that isn't just a copy of a stream.

     

    Twitch is great for live Q&A once the game is released.

    I prefer to get my information from the Official Forums,  Official Website, or the game's official youtube channel.  Theres just too much junk out in the rest of the social media world made by people unassociated with the game.

    there is too many 3rd party sites that do make things up for views,likes,ect. or just to cause chaos..Rather get first-hand info from people involved directly , then from a 3rd party site that might not(and most likely) will not have the dev's best interest.but there are a few Twitch channels and YTers that are presenting the info properly as well, but also looking it on OF's are still the best.

     Not a fan of social media. Website and forums are how I communicate with the gaming community, followed a distant second by YouTube. I'm not a younger gamer though, in my mid 30s. Also agree with vjek about the state of the website and forums for Pantheon. I'm not sure how much VR has considered that the target demographic for Pantheon is probably going to be older gamers but even somebody like myself that started EQ at age 16 is now almost middle aged. Since I don't have all the statistics on hand I can't say for sure just how many people my age use social media, but ancedotal experience tells me the most exposure would come from Facebook and YouTube. But me personally? I won't follow anything outside the offical website, the offical forums, and YouTube.
