Top 7 Social networks for you to use

I bet you want to know more about different social networks, am I right? It is not that you heard anything yet, it is only 2021 🙂

Social networks are well known for years, and these days there is a social network for everyone. Some statistics say that approximately 2 billion users used social networking sites and apps in 2015. We can safely presume that the mentioned number is much higher in 2021.

People have always wanted to connect with others, and social networks can fill that role perfectly. In this age of digitalization, people have found ways to be socially active on the internet, which is possible with the numerous social networking platforms and apps.

With the unfortunate covid situation, personal handshake or face-to-face meeting are sometimes not possible, so the importance of social networking is even greater than before.

We will mention the biggest platforms here, otherwise this list would be pretty long:

  • Facebook – This is easily the largest social networking site in the world and one of the most widely used. And, Facebook was perhaps the first that surpassed the landmark of 1 billion user accounts. Apart from the ability to network with friends and relatives, you can also access different Facebook apps to sell online and you can even market or promote your business, brand, and products by using paid Facebook ads.
  • WhatsApp – Despite having been acquired by Facebook in 2014, this instant messaging platform exists as an independent entity. It arrived on the scene much later than Facebook, but has been able to capture the imagination of millions of people across the world by giving them the ability to communicate and share instantly with individuals and groups.
  • Instagram – Instagram was launched as a unique social networking platform that was completely based on sharing photos and videos. This photo sharing social networking app thus enables you to capture the best moments of your life, with your phone’s camera or any other camera, and convert them into works of art. This is possible because Instagram allows you to apply multiple filters to your photos and you can easily post them to other popular social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter. It is now part of the Facebook empire.
  • Pinterest – This is a photo sharing and visual bookmarking social media site or app that enables you to find new ideas for your projects and save them. So, you can do DIY tasks or home improvement projects, plan your travel agenda and so on by using Pinterest.
  • LinkedIn – LinkedIn is easily one of the most popular professional social networking sites or apps and is available in over 20 languages. It is used across the globe by all types of professionals and serves as an ideal platform to connect with different businesses, locate and hire ideal candidates, and more. It boasts over 400 million members.
  • YouTube – YouTube is the world’s largest video-sharing social networking site that enables users to upload and share videos, view them, comment on them and like them. This social network is accessible across the globe and even enables users to create a YouTube channel where they can upload all their personally recorded videos to showcase to their friends and followers.
  • TikTok – TikTok is insanely popular with the kids these days. If you’re under 16 then this is the place to be. TikTok is a social video app that allows its users to share short videos. There’s plenty of stickers, filters and augmented reality features to add to your videos.
