Social Media
By: Ana

        One follower, ten followers, thousands of followers!! Social media can keep you up to date on what’s going on in the world around you. From what your friend did over the weekend to where your favorite movie star spent their weekend. Some of the most popular social networking websites are Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat, Vine, etc.

    By now I think everyone knows how valuable and necessary social media is. Just think about the opportunity social media gives people; to be able to connect with others who might live on the other side of the world. Social media also spreads information faster than any other media. So now you know where to go if you are trying to spread the word or simply make new friends.

    Some of the most commonly used social networking websites today are the following!! On Twitter you are able to send short 140 character messages called tweets to your friends, otherwise know as followers. Which usually answer questions like, “What are you doing?” or "How are you feeling?" Facebook allows users to create profiles, where you can post photos and videos, send messages, and keep in touch with family and old friends. Instagram enables users to share pictures and videos. Tumblr is the microblogging part of social networking, on here you can post text, photos, quotes, music, and videos. Snapchat is a photo messaging application where you can take pictures, record videos add text and drawings to those photos or videos and send them to your list of friends. On Vine you can share six second videos which play on a continuous loop. There are plenty other social networking websites, but these were just a few.
