Who isn’t a Facebook/Instagram or for that matter Twitter user nowadays? Almost everyone is. To be precise more than 50% of the world’s population is active on at least one of the social media platforms. I, for my part, am active on all social media platforms. Social media surrounds us all, and it has become an important part of our lives. Using social media helps us socialize, share ideas, make new contacts, be aware of all the events happening in the world currently, and even sell and market items too.
