No matter how alone we are in real life, our presence on social networking applications is predominant. We want to leave our mark everywhere on this planet at the same time. So, we are a nature lover on facebook in the morning, a foodie on Instagram at lunch, and a party freak on Snapchat at night.
Here are top social apps which you can find on every millennial’s smartphone.
Earlier, we used to pin all the important messages and ideas on a board but who does that now? Pinterest is a platform that lets people discover and pin ideas that inspire them. A user can create different boards to save the creative ideas and let them out for the world to follow. Pinterest has more than 100 million monthly active users and it would not be an exaggeration to say, a millennial’s life is uninteresting without Pinterest.
As we are getting more dependent on technology for our daily chores, our memory has become that of a goldfish. Snapchat is just that. It is based on ephemeral messaging which means the message or picture will disappear once it is viewed. Snapchat recently introduced quirky camera filters which has taken the users by surprise.
Admit it or not, Tinder has proved to be the most successful dating platform for people who are introvert in their real lives. With just a simple left or right swipe, you can choose who to date or not. You may not believe it but some hook-ups have led to marriages also.
Instagram is like your girlfriend but with some makeup. The social platform has more than 400 million active users per month which means the social junkie cannot live without checking his Instagram feeds. It has become a mean of profit as businesses hire photographers to travel around the world and post on their behalf. Instagram doesn’t provide any solution to download media files. Don’t worry we got your back!
Youtube is the second largest search engine in the world after Google. So, you can understand the impact it creates. More than 100 hours of video are uploaded on Youtube ranging from categories like Education, Entertainment, Kids, Arts, History, Music, Dance, and what not. Youtube is the primary source for any video that is making rounds on the internet. When you have more than 1 billion users, you own the place.
What do you do when you have a question? Google it? Yes, but it may not be able to give an exact and elaborative answer to your question. Quora is the new ‘I need a straight answer to my question’. It is a question and answer platform where people ask questions and provide answers to other to the best of their knowledge.
If you think LinkedIn is about uploading the resume and getting a job, then you’ve been doing it wrong. LinkedIn is about building a network for easily reaching out to people in your field. It has become a platform for people to open new opportunities for their career. It is like Facebook for the professional you.
Anything that happens around the globe, it breaks on Twitter first. It would not be incorrect to say that Twitter is the epicentre for most of the breaking news. Events, polls, jokes, and news, Twitter has got it all. According to a study, Twitter is more addictive than cigarettes and alcohol. It is amazing how people can say so much in just 140 characters.
The social media app without which the post would never be complete. Facebook is the most downloaded app of all time. It is so much in use that 6,00,000 attempts are made every day to hack accounts. An average user checks Facebook at least 14 times a day. So, chances are you are just using Facebook without being concerned about the other apps.
