D) staff and their level of understanding.

None of those channels are a risk in their own right, what concerns me is people clicking on links or downloads from unknown sources.

They can be delivered through ay channel.

I would say so. It carries the same risk as Colab tools in that malicious links and/or files can be shared through it.

I'm more into social media because social media contains things I have no control over, unlike collaboration apps that can be done with companies that enforce strong password policies, train employees on how to recognize and avoid phishing attacks and keep all devices up to date software and applications with the latest security patches. And for mobile chat, maybe most of it is used for personal interests, for work, and connected to office systems, the contents of the message will be monitored more closely. That's my thought.
