Essential Social Media Smartphone Apps

Today the smartphone has become an extension of our hands. It is very rare to catch sight of a person without a phone in their hands, especially when they are in a waiting room or on the train, etc.

Do you own a smartphone? Here are some essential social media Apps you need to have on it:

Facebook – This is one of the biggest social media Apps that is bringing people together from not only various parts of the world but from various walks of life. What used to be a platform for people to meet on, get back in touch and share photos and thoughts on, has extended to a place where people with similar mindset can get in touch and organize events. If there is a social protest in your country, you are sure to find at least a few pages on this App regarding it. You can join it, follow it and be updated on what is happening and also be a part of it.

Instagram – A place to share your photos on and get a number of likes and comments. This is good for not just sharing your day to day photos about your life and activities; it is a great place for people passionate about something in particular. For example, a food blogger or a person keen on cooking can cook, take photos of it and share it here for the world to see and appreciate. This can be used as a great marketing tool too.

Snapchat – Another social media App, where people share photos and comments about everyday life. You can just have a quick chat with people on your list. This is the fastest way to share a story with your friends. Though other Apps have adapted this feature, this still remains the favorite for such sharing.

Now, How do you know if someone blocked you on Snapchat? They will disappear from your list, simple! You won’t even be able to find them through the search engine on snap chat. However, if they have only “unfriended” you, you can find them in your search results.

Social media is one of the biggest communication tools these days. So, when you are using it, be prepared to be befriended by strangers, “unfriended” by your own friends, blocked by people you think, likes you. This is a place to have fun, yet remember who does what.
