Friendster in 2002 and MySpace in 2003 was the pioneer in the Social Media revolution. Facebook came in 2004 and revolutionized the world of Social Media. Twitter encouraged us to put our thoughts to the world in less than 140 words when it came in 2006. Instagram (2010) and Flickr (2004) allowed us to express ourselves better through imagery. Youtube (2005) became the social place for all the video needs we are so thankful to all the founders.
Pinterest, Tumblr, WordPress, Sanpchat, and many more are the other platforms which have helped the world to connect with each other.
What should you do today?
Use your favourite social media platform to tell the world about your love towards the Social Media using #SocialMediaDay hashtag. You can pledge to use it positively and also appeal to people to not misuse it who are connected to you on various social media platforms.
