Happy World Social Media Day!
Social Media Day is a way to recognize social media’s impact on global communication, and to bring the world together to celebrate it. Everyone uses social media everyday; it’s how we connect with people all over the world in a simple and fast way.
The first major social media platform was MySpace in 2003, and Facebook launched soon after in 2004. Facebook is the largest social media platforms in existence that now has over one billion people using it. Other popular social media platforms are Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Whatsapp, TikTok, and many others. These platforms have evolved from written messages, to pictures, and eventually videos that can be shared instantly and seen by millions.
Besides connecting with our friends and family in an easier way, social media has led to a whole new world of business growth, such as e-commerce brands popping up all over the world, advertising being displayed on every page in the web, and media sharing important news with people in a matter of minutes. Social media has had a significant impact on our world, and millions of people can’t imagine living without it now.
