Lately it seems like everyone has a presence on social media. Personally, I can only think of one person in my social circle who doesn’t have any social media accounts, and frankly, I think it’s weird. But is social media truly mainstream?
Sometimes we all need a little comic relief. Where else to turn than to the Internet! Rife with .gifs, memes, and funny stories, the Web is the perfect place to find humor. Social media is certainly no exception. You can find loads of funnies on Facebook, Twitter, and more.
Everybody likes free stuff, right? I know I do. Social media networks are seemingly the perfect place to run contests and giveaways. Businesses typically have quite a few people who like their company on Facebook, and since the social media giant does everything in real time, you can run contests quickly and efficiently.
Oh Google+. You had great hopes to become the next big social media site. Has it happened yet? Well, not really.
Google+ is the social network brought to you by arguably the biggest Internet conglomerate of all time. When this brainchild of the Google brand was announced, many people thought it would be so successful that it could edge Facebook out of the social media market. While Google+ may be starting to catch up to Facebook on some fronts, it still has a very long way to go to compete with the original social media giant.
