What type of audience are you trying to reach? Each one has it's pro's and con's. I prefer facebook because it's easy to target your ads to a certain type of audience.

In my experience, advertising on Instagram has never brought about a conversion, although the Facebook ads platform warns you that "deselecting Instagram will bring sub-optimal results". If you're selling something online then you can use both AdWords and Facebook ads. In fact, you can set it up so that people looking for your product through Google are targeted through AdWords and once they click on your ads, they are re-targeted through Facebook dynamic product ads.

Its depend on your business. If you have E commerce type of website you can go for Facebook and ad word. I don't know about Instagram ad.

Both has their own uniqueness but both are useful. If you want to be on SERP of google then you can go with the google Or If you want to generate traffic from social media then facebook is more useful instead of Instagram.

If you target audience is local like your city or province, then use Facebook ads because now a day everyone is using this. On the other hand, if you have research any target keyword in google than it is good for you. Choice is yours. My suggestion is invest both on to see best result.

Care to explain why? I am not a mind reader so if you can share details in a written format, that would be helpful to everyone.

Niche and target audience , it will depend on that. Both will do you well but since even your grandma or your pet can use Social Media easily, I'm slightly favoring that choice or platform. Just to inform you, YouTube is social media but it's owned by Google. You may pick one (SM or Google) but that shouldn't stop you from using both if it allows it.

I prefer social media (facebook) because i am getting much better results with facebook ads than with google ads.
But to be fair i also have much more training in facebook ads than google.

Why i like facebook, because i narrow the ads only to people from my niche. In google adwords i think the click cost is too expensive to scale up the publicity.

Definitely depends on your niche. Even within a niche. For example, we work in insurance. For one of our insurance niches, we have had success with Facebook, but not with SEO. For a different insurance niche, it's been the opposite.

Instagram (and Pinterest to some extend) ads are performing very well in fashion and cooking niches!
For more tech savvy audience, Twitter may work.

I suggest Facebook ads because it helps us easily to target specific audience
