Social Media has a huge impact on our lives, I often wonder where we would be without it. The evolution of technology over time is advancing rapidly with new phones, applications and gadgets coming out constantly. Not only does Social Media have advantages including speedy communication, building relationships and allows us to communicate worldwide, however it also plays as a foreground for businesses to start from.
Worldwide, there are over 4.2 billion active Social Media users. On a daily basis we check our phones, refreshing our feeds and scrolling through applications such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok and many more.
